Tesla vehicles are accelerating without caution, triggering government scrutiny

The National Highway Traffic Security Administration said Friday that it is weighing whether to introduce an examination into “sudden unexpected acceleration” of 500,000 Tesla lorries, according to Reuters

The petition covers Tesla Design S (2012-2019 model year), Design X (2016-2019), and Design 3 (2018-2019) cars, Reuters states. It also mentions 127 customer grievances, 123 special automobiles, 110 crashes, and 52 injuries. A spokesperson for Tesla did not instantly respond to an ask for remark.

” As is the company’s standard practice in such matters, NHTSA will carefully review the petition and relevant information,” a representative for the firm stated in a declaration.

Anyone can submit a petition requesting NHTSA to open an examination into a supposed safety flaw. After performing a technical analysis, the company’s Workplace of Defects Examination informs the petitioner whether it will move on with an examination.

This isn’t the first time that Tesla has dealt with allegations of malfunctioning automobiles. In November 2018, the electrical automaker dealt with a class action suit from clients who declared their Design S and X automobiles would all of a sudden speed up without caution. Another claim was submitted last year by Mena Massoud, star of Disney’s live-action Aladdin, who claimed a malfunctioning suspension caused the wheel of his Model 3 to come off a day after he bought it. And most just recently, NHTSA opened an examination into grievances about car fires linked to the battery management systems in some Design S and X automobiles.

Tesla has also come under fire over security concerns including its innovative chauffeur support system, Auto-pilot. The National Transportation Security Board revealed plans the other day to hold a public hearing in February to determine the probable reason for the fatal crash of a Tesla in Mountain View, California in 2017.

There have been a variety of reports of Tesla owners crashing their cars while utilizing Auto-pilot, as well as a handful of individuals who have been eliminated while using Autopilot. Tesla has regularly stated that chauffeurs who utilize Autopilot are much safer than those who do not.
