Tesla is under investigation again, and it's still in its hometown of the United States.
August 6 news, according to overseas media reports, last week Tesla was charged by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV, Department of Motor Vehicles) for falsely promoting Autopilot (automatic assisted driving) and Full Self-Driving (fully autonomous driving) function.
In two complaints filed July 28 with the state's Office of Administrative Hearings, the DMV said, "Tesla disseminates false or false information when it advertises that vehicles are or may be equipped with advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) features.A misleading statement with no factual basis."
The DMV notes that the Autopilot page on Tesla's website uses "all you need to do is get in the car and tell your car where to go. If you don't say anything, your car will look at your calendar and take you."Get to that place as a hypothetical destination. Your Tesla will figure out the best route to navigate city streets, complex intersections and highways." "The system is designed for short and long trips without driving.the person in the seat to take any action." misleading remarks.
The DMV states, "These 'Autopilot' and 'Full Self-Driving' labels state that the ADAS-equipped vehicle will operate as a self-driving vehicle,but in reality the ADAS-equipped vehicle was issued at the time of these adverts.of vehicles cannot operate as autonomous vehicles, not even now.”
Although Tesla's website states that the Autopilot feature "requires driver supervision and does not cause the vehicle to drive itself," the DMV says this contradicts the misleading advertising slogan and is still misleadingsex.
The allegation is very serious and could affect Tesla's car sales in California, if the regulator's complaint to the California Office of Administrative hearing is successful, TeslaPull's license to manufacture and sell cars in California may be suspended or revoked.
