Tesla Model 3 is currently one of the most in-demand electric vehicle models of Elon Musk since it offers advanced features that would make your road trips easier and more comfortable.
However, it seems like this advanced EV is also quite capable in hardcore situations, which was shown in a new viral video. As of the moment, trending footage was posted on Twitter, generating more than 100,000 views and 1,000 likes.
"Undercover cop in a Tesla trying to stop a criminal / Wife in a Tesla trying to teach her cheating husband and mistress a lesson/something like that. Clearly NOT Tesla's fault (that's the main thing here)," said one of the Twitter users in the comment section.
On the other hand, the uploader even said that the captured rescue scenario is like a real-life "GTA" moment.
Tesla Model 3 Vs. Four Kidnappers
According to Teslarati's latest report, the scenario involved two Tesla drivers and four kidnappers, who were using a Toyota Yaris sedan.
The kidnapping situation happened in broad daylight. Authorities explained that crime activity happened in Linkou District near Taipei, Taiwan. The abductors, led by a man named Huang, targeted Lin, a Tesla Model 3 owner.
The police explained that the four criminals attacked Lin and then forced him to get inside their Yaris sedan. However, it was a good thing that Chen, Lin's friend, was there. Chen, who also owns a Tesla Model 3, quickly took action to stop the kidnappers from abducting his friend. He continuously rammed his car into the kidnappers' Toyota Yaris until it couldn't be driven anymore.

However, his Tesla Model 3 also took some serious damage on the front. The criminals were caught since they only rented the Toyota Yaris. The company, which issued the car to them, also helped the police to identify those who rented it.
