Tesla has unveiled a series of GIFs to show off the brand new titanium underbody shield and aluminum deflector plates that will now come standard on all Model S vehicles.

After a series of fires involving the Model S this past year, Elon Musk says, “We felt it was important to bring this risk down to virtually zero to give Model S owners complete peace of mind.”

Tesla service is also offering the triple underbody shield installation free of charge to all existing Model S owners since only Model S vehicle bodies manufactured after March 6th featured the new shield.
