Tesla Full-Self Driving Option Comes Up Empty


#Elon #Musk said in a tweet, “All #Tesla cars delivered in the final three days of the year will get three months of the #Full #Self-Driving option for free. #Delivery & docs must be fully complete by midnight #Dec 31st.”

#Tesla touts its vehicles as the safest cars in the world with passive and active safety features to protect both the driver and passengers. #Citing their achievement of five-star safety ratings in every category and subcategory in U.S. government testing, it also goes on to say that the #Model 3 was found to have the lowest probability of injury of any car tested, followed by the #Model S and #Model X. #Tesla further states that the #Model X was the first SUV achieve a five-star rating across the board.

The #Full #Self-Driving option is the successor to #Tesla’s #Autopilot, which was deemed less safe than manual driving, according to an article in #Forbes. #It seems that #Tesla doesn’t abide by the #National #Highway #Transportation #Safety #Administration’s (NHTSA) definition of automobile crashes versus accidents as they choose to report. #Tesla says that their cars were involved in one accident in every 3.07 million miles driven with #Autopilot engaged. #Tesla also stated that without #Autopilot on, #Tesla drivers had one accident for every 2.10 million miles driven due to their advanced safety features. #This doesn’t take into account fatalities that have occurred with #Autopilot engaged, nor the more spectacular accidents while #Autopilot was being used.

#So exactly what is #Full #Self-Driving? #According to #Consumer #Reports, it’s an $8,000-$10,000 option on a #Tesla that you may not want anytime soon. “Despite the name, the #Full #Self-Driving capability suite requires significant driver attention to ensure that these developing-technology features don’t introduce new safety risks to the driver, or other vehicles out on the road,” said #Jake #Fisher, senior director of auto testing at #Consumer #Reports. “Not only that, in our evaluations we determined that several of the features don’t provide much in the way of real benefits to customers, despite the extremely high purchase price.”

#Inconsistency was the biggest problem encountered with #Full #Self-Driving, whether utilizing #Autopark, #Smart #Summon, #Autopilot navigation, or #Traffic #Light and #Stop #Sign #Control. #Forgetting where your #Tesla parked itself previously may be no big thing, but driving in the carpool lane, remaining in the passing lane for long periods (a potential moving violation in #Washington state), or driving through stop signs aren’t minor errors. #Better not to be a #Tesla beta tester, whether for free as #Elon announced, or as a costly option.
