Utah Police Say Autopilot Mode Was On

Responding to a user who indicated that Tesla's autopilot function still needs safety tweaking, Musk stated: "It certainly needs to be better & we work to improve it every day, but flawless is enemy of good".

In a statement on its Facebook page Ticino fire brigade said: 'The violent impact of Lithium-ion batteries could probably have caused a phenomenon called "thermal runaway", i.e. a rapid and unstoppable increase in temperature'.

Police said on Monday that the driver, who suffered a broken ankle, said she had been using Autopilot before the crash.

Police said speed was a factor, but also that the vehicle burst into flames shortly after the accident. The driver of the Unified Fire Authority vehicle was checked for injuries related to whiplash; however, he was not taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Tesla has since pushed back its 20,000 units/month production goal to the end June of 2018.

Tesla, whose future depends to a large extent on the success of its new Model 3 auto, could do without any more negative PR.

The NTSB said autopilot was not part of its investigation's focus.

A US traffic safety regulator on May 2 contradicted Tesla's claim that the agency had found that its Autopilot technology significantly reduced crashes.

The NTSB and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are also looking into the performance of the company's Autopilot system in the March crash of a Tesla Model X on a California highway. "Approx 4X better than avg", Musk said.
