Tesla’s Vehicle Safety Report reveals drivers on Autopilot are safer from accidents and ‘near-crashes’

Tesla has released Q3 2018’s vehicle safety report, which shares data about accidents and “crash-like events” that happen to its fleet of electric cars on the road. Tesla’s latest figures feature updated numbers for incidents that transpire both with Autopilot engaged and while the driver-assist system is inactive.

Tesla notes that its figures come from a new telemetry stream for its electric cars, which enable the company to gather critical fleet-wide statistics once its system detects a crash-related incident. Based on the data collected over the quarter, Tesla registered one accident or crash-like event for every 3.34 million miles driven while Autopilot is engaged. On the other hand, the company recorded one accident or crash-like event for every 1.92 million miles driven without Autopilot. Recent figures from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) note that in the United States, there is an automobile crash for every 492,000 miles driven.
