One of the most known features of Tesla’s electric vehicles is the Autopilot. But one of the main issues about it is the safety factor. It causes a lot of people to question how the system is gonna work on a dangerous situation.
Well, Tesla just released a report on the Vehicles Safety, check the numbers:
For the first quarter of 2019 shows that there was one accident for every 2.87 million miles driven. All of that with the Autopilot turned on. With safety features turned on, except fot the Autopilot, Tesla registered one accident for every 1.76 million miles driven.
With both Autopilot and active safety features off, the company registered one accident per every 1.26 million miles driven.
In the second quarter, the numbers grew even better. Tesla registered one accident per 3.27 million miles driven with Autopilot. With safety on, without the Autopilot, the number is one accident per 2.19 million miles. To finish, 1.41 million miles were run, registering one accident, without any feature turned on.
The main problem in analyzing this data is the fact that Autopilot is usually used on highways, while the safety features are often used on a regular daily basis. Still, the numbers are significant.
