Tretyakov told local media he suffered a broken leg, while his two children escaped the auto with only minor injuries, although the car's battery pack appears to have caught fire, producing a massive explosion and fire.

After two incidents of high-profile fires in China, Tesla released a software update to its vehicles in May to increase the longevity of the battery and to increase safety.

After Tesla reduced the range of older Model S and Model X vehicles by software update at the beginning of this year after a fire in a Model S in Hong Kong, a lawsuit has now been filed against the electric auto manufacturer.

In March, a 50-year-old man was killed when his Tesla Model 3 collided with a tractor-trailer in Florida.

A Tesla Model S burst into flames on the side of a Russian highway late Saturday evening after colliding with a tow truck.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has defended Tesla electric vehicles, saying that the cars are less likely to catch on fire than regular cars with combustion engines.

This incident isn't the first to involve the electric-carmaker's Autopilot system.

Tretyakov-head of the Russian investment firm Arikapital-said he was using the car's driver-assist autopilot system at the time of the crash, although he was still holding the steering wheel, REN TV reported.

A law enforcement source said: "The Tesla was probably driving on autopilot and couldn't recognise the tow truck in front of it, after which it caught fire".

Russia's RIA state news agency website posted a video showing the vehicle driving in the left-hand lane of Moscow's ring road, known as the MKAD, before crashing into a tow truck parked by a safety fence that separates the carriageway from oncoming traffic.

"When it was approaching the road sweeper, the vehicle didn't put on the brake or avoid it", a police officer said in a CCTV (China's government-owned news channel) report, cited by the New York Times. Dashcam footage of the incident shows the Tesla appearing to continue at highway speed, without slowing or attempting a maneuver to evade the truck. "Instead, it crashed right into it".

Tesla did not respond immediately to a request for comment.
