The Tesla electric car that crashed on April 17 in the state of Texas did not have an activated autopilot function. This was stated by the founder of the company for the production of these vehicles Elon Musk on his page on Twitter.
One social network user pointed out that Tesla’s autopilot disengaged 10 seconds after the driver removed his hands from the steering wheel.
“Data records obtained so far show that the autopilot has not been turned on, and the full autonomous driving feature was not purchased for this car,” Musk responded.
Last Sunday, it was reported that two men were killed after a Tesla electric car that was driving on autopilot crashed at high speed into a tree in American Woodlands, Texas. According to police, no one was driving the car, with one man in the front passenger seat and the other in the back seat.
