Tesla Has Released Impressive Quarterly Safety Report

Safety has always been a priority for Tesla, therefore, in addition to producing the safest cars in the world, the company is developing advanced driver assistance and Autopilot.

On May 1, Tesla officially released its quarterly Vehicle Safety Report, which shows significant success and records its safest quarter in the company's history. Recent updates show significant improvements to Autopilot that have made its use even safer. Recently, Tesla rolled out a wide US release of its new Traffic Light, Stop Sign Control feature and Stops at Crosswalks & Traffic Light improvements.

Tesla's report shows that the company registered 1 accident for every 4.68 million miles driven in which drivers had Autopilot engaged. This is a significant improvement since in Q4 2019 this figure was: 1 accident for every 3.07 million miles. 

For those driving without Autopilot but with active safety features, Tesla registered 1 accident for every 1.99 million miles driven. In the previous quarter was recorded: 1 accident for every 2.10 million miles.

"In the 1st quarter, we registered one accident for every 4.68 million miles driven. For those driving without Autopilot engaged. For those driving without Autopilot but with our active safety features, we registered one accident for every 1.99 million miles driven. Autopilot and without our active safety features, we registered one accident for every 1.42 million miles driven. By comparison, NHTSA's most recent data shows that in the United States there is an automobile crash every 479,000 miles."

The data shows that Total overall miles and crashes were significantly reduced in this quarter, and driving with Autopilot activated is actually much safer than driving without this feature. Autopilot is still one of the easiest ways to improve driving safety today.

At Tesla, believe that technology can help improve safety. That’s why Tesla vehicles are engineered to be the safest cars in the world. The unique combination of passive safety, active safety, and automated driver assistance is crucial for keeping not just Tesla drivers and passengers safe, but all drivers on the road.

While no car can prevent all accidents, Tesla work every day to try to make them much less likely to occur. Active safety features come standard on all Tesla vehicles. Because every Tesla is connected, the company able to use the billions of miles of real-world data from their global fleet - of which more than 1 billion have been driven with Autopilot engaged - to understand the different ways accidents happen.

Through over-the-air software updates, they are able to introduce safety features and enhancements long after a car has been delivered, as well as release updated versions of existing safety features that take into account the most up-to-date real-world data collected by their fleet.
