  • Telsa has reported that one of its vehicles was involved in collision while in auto pilot mode. The accident took place in Beijing last week when a Tesla model hit a parked car, causing vehicle damage but no injuries. Tesla states the driver’s hands were not detected on the steering wheel. The driver accuses Tesla of advertising the vehicle as “self-driving” instead of an advanced driver assistance system. In the U.S., three previous accidents involving Tesla models in autopilot mode have been reported this year.
