California regulator accuses Tesla of misleading consumers

The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) said Tesla advertised its autopilot and autonomous driving technologies as more efficient than they actually are, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The company “has made or published false or misleading statements that are not based on facts,” according to a case filed July 28 with the Office of Administrative Hearings.

The Los Angeles Times writes that Tesla vehicles could never “and never can operate as autonomous vehicles,” claims DMV. The regulator did not immediately respond to an AFP request for comment.

Tesla’s website describes its autopilot as having “fully autonomous driving.” “All the driver has to do is get in the car and tell them where to go,” the company says, promising that “if you don’t say anything, the car will check your schedule and take you to your intended destination.” “

The ruling in favor of the California regulator could have serious repercussions for the electric car maker, including the potential revocation of licenses that allow Tesla to make or sell its cars in the state, according to the Times.

However, a DMV spokesperson told the newspaper that what the agency really wants is for Tesla to better inform consumers about its autonomous vehicles and acknowledge the limitations of its technology.

Tesla vehicles equipped with self-driving software have been involved in 273 crashes in the United States, according to a report released in June by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is investigating the company.

In June, Tesla owner Elon Musk stressed the importance of fully autonomous driving, saying that without it, the value of his company would be “close to zero.”
