Tesla Model 3 Car Accidents

Tesla’s Model 3 is the top-selling plug-in electric car in the world. Since the model’s debut in 2017, Tesla has sold nearly 400,000 Model 3s. It’s easy to see why, considering the car can drive between 250 (Standard Range model) and 320 miles (Long Range) without a charge. In 2018, Popular Mechanics named the Model 3 its Car of the Year, while Automobile magazine awarded it Design of the Year.

Those accolades, though, have been accompanied by troubling accidents. Some Model 3s are equipped with Tesla’s self-driving mode, known as Autopilot. Vehicles with Autopilot have been involved in several fatal crashes over the years, leading some to question the software’s safety, and to criticize the way Tesla markets its self-driving technology.

What Does Tesla’s Autopilot Do?

Tesla describes its Autopilot feature as “an advanced driver assistance system that enhances safety and convenience behind the wheel. When used properly, Autopilot reduces your overall workload as a driver.” Now, contrast this language with the term “Autopilot” itself. The name seems to imply that the car will drive itself, meaning a driver can operate their vehicle hands-off, without having to pay attention. The fine print, though, says otherwise.

In short, it seems like there is a big discrepancy between what Autopilot suggests and what it actually does. Drivers who feel like they can mentally check out behind the wheel may find themselves in a terrible accident, wondering how the crash could have occurred given that Autopilot includes “Autosteering” that is supposedly “traffic-aware.” If the car is aware of traffic, and it can steer, navigate, and change lanes on its own, why would it hit a parked car or a pedestrian? These are the types of questions to which we don’t yet have answers.

Tragically, the Model 3 has already been involved in several serious accidents, two of them fatal:
