Self-driving vehicles will play a crucial role in improving transportation safety and accelerating the world’s transition to a sustainable future.

Tesla learned that the NHTSA is opening a preliminary evaluation into the performance of Autopilot during a recent fatal crash that occurred in a Model S.

Worldwide, there is a fatality approximately every 60 million miles. It is important to emphasise that the NHTSA action is simply a preliminary evaluation to determine whether the system worked according to expectations.
