Tesla Cars With Autopilot Are Over Six Times Safer Than Average US Car
In the 4th quarter, Tesla cars had one accident for every 2.91 million miles driven in which drivers had Autopilot engaged. For those driving without Autopilot, we registered one accident for every 1.58 million miles driven.
NHTSA’s most recent data shows that in the United States there is an automobile crash every 436,000 miles. Tesla cars with autopilot engaged are 6.6 times safer than average US cars. Tesla cars without autopilot are 3.6 times safer than average US cars.
