Tesla released Vehicle Safety Report—Better Safety with Autopilot
Tesla released its Q4 2021 Safety Report, which indicates that its vehicles using Autopilot are nine times safer than other vehicles driven by human-pilots in US. Customers driving with Autopilot recorded one crash for every 4.31 million miles driven, an improvement year-over-year. This demonstrates Tesla Autopilot continued strong safety record.
Autopilot advanced safety and convenience features are designed to assist you with the most burdensome parts of driving. “Autopilot introduces new features and improves existing functionality to make your Tesla safer and more capable over time,” explains the automaker.
Active safety features are standard on all Tesla vehicles built after September 2014, providing an additional layer of safety beyond the physical structure of the vehicle. The company uses data from all of its vehicles on the road to better understand how accidents happen. After analyzing the data, Tesla continues to develop features that help Tesla drivers mitigate or avoid accidents.
Tesla stated that the Model S, Model X, and Model 3 achieved the lowest overall probability of injury of any vehicle ever tested by the US government’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). It’s also reported that Tesla Autopilot is statistically safer than a human driver, and Tesla cars driven by humans are still safer than other cars.
