Tesla has been accused by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) of falsely advertising its Autopilot and Full Self-Driving (FSD) features. As a result, he has filed several lawsuits against the automaker.
The California Department of Motor Vehicles has accused Tesla of deceptive marketing practices regarding its driver assistance systems. In the United States, which carry the Autopilot and Full Self Driving brands. On July 28, the agency filed two separate complaints with the state’s Office of Administrative Hearings, alleging that Tesla made “false or misleading” statements about its vehicles’ self-driving capabilities.
Tesla claims that with fully self-driving (FSD), which is currently in beta. “You only need to get in your car and tell it where to go.” If you don’t say anything, your car will check your calendar and take you to your assumptive destination. Your Tesla will choose the best route for you, navigating city streets, complex intersections, and freeways.”
Tesla was caught lying about its fully autonomous driving capabilities.
As a result, Tesla does not appear to provide only precise information about its driving assistance systems on its official website. Including self-driving. Drivers must pay an additional $12,000 for Tesla’s FSD system. An option that includes automatic parking and lane changing. In addition to being able to summon a vehicle from a parking spot to where they are. As well as access to a beta programmed for testing features.
Tesla announces for example that ” The FSD system is designed to be able to make short and long distance journeys without the person sitting in the driver’s seat having to intervene “. However, Full-Self Driving is still in beta phase and the driver must always be aware of his environment. Tesla owners should always have their hands on the wheel. And it’s not uncommon for drivers to have to take control when approaching dangerous situations. The system works relatively well on most roads, but is still not without flaws.
It is surprising to see Tesla posting such comments on its website, since the company has already admitted in the past that Autopilot does not yet make its cars autonomous. This isn’t the first time these technologies have come under scrutiny. As Tesla has previously been ordered to share its Autopilot data with authorities.
