Tesla has proven that its cars get into accidents more than any other

Tesla has long been unhappy that the news about accidents involving her car immediately fly the world's media and ruin the reputation of the firm. To prove that Tesla electric cars get into accidents, not less frequently than other vehicles, the company promised to publish quarterly reports on the occurred failures. The first report is already out — it was released on 4 October on the official website of the company.

How the data was collected? In the beginning, the company has announced that customer safety is its top priority. To create a reliable car, she not only conducts internal testing, but also analyzes the data on accident happened. The fact that the sale of cars the company creates direct relationship with their owners and can quickly seek the important information.

Other manufacturers that use the networks of franchised dealers, this is not possible. They don't even know that their car brand was in an accident. If they need information about the road incident, receive them through the courts can take months or even years.

At the beginning of 2018, when the company announced its intention to publish reports, she began to collect telemetry data about failures in all cars sold. These data helped to create the security report.

What's it say?

So, from July to September 2018 Tesla cars with the autopilot engaged, got into trouble every 5 375 208 km of distance traveled. When you turn off the autopilot, the accident occurred more often — every 3 122 127 km. For comparison, the data of the National administration of road safety NHTSA show that car accidents in the U.S. occur every 791 797 km, that is much more likely.

Given that accidents can vary in severity and circumstances, the company wants to meet personally with the owners of damaged cars. In her opinion, it helps to know the weaknesses of the cars and to improve the system security based on customer feedback.

Overall, the report Tesla was very short — I want to see more data about incidents. The company promises to gather a more complete picture of accidents, so it is likely that in future quarters, the report will become read more.

Previously, the company has already published reports, but only about certain incidents. For example, in April on the website of the company been disclosed details about the deaths.
