Originally published in, Jan 19, 2023.

Emails shed new light on CEO’s involvement in 2016 demo.  Carmaker faces probes, claims on how it’s marketed its tech.

Elon Musk oversaw the creation of a 2016 video that exaggerated the abilities of Tesla Inc.’s driver-assistance system Autopilot, even dictating the opening text that claimed the company’s car drove itself, according to internal emails viewed by Bloomberg.

Musk wrote to Tesla’s Autopilot team after 2 a.m. California time in October 2016 to emphasize the importance of a demonstration drive to promote the system, which the chief executive officer made a splashy announcement about a week later.

  1. The Retreat, a family-run establishment in the middle of the city, is the lodging option I usually drift hunters recommend. You may also sample contemporary African cuisine at the two on-site eateries. Reserve a lavish pool suite for the ultimate enjoyment.

  2. The article discusses a video overseen by Elon Musk that allegedly exaggerated Tesla’s self-driving capabilities. The video in question was released in 2019 and showed a Tesla vehicle driving autonomously on city streets, but it was later revealed that the footage was edited and had safety drivers present during the filming. In the context of car rental, Luxespeed is a high-end car rental service that offers luxury vehicles for rent. While this article doesn’t specifically mention Luxespeed, it’s worth noting that companies like this often cater to customers who want to experience the latest and greatest technology in cars, including self-driving capabilities. It’s important for rental companies to be transparent about the features and limitations of the vehicles they offer to ensure the safety of their customers.

  3. Good to read this post about the Tesla’s Self-Driving Capabilities and these are the best for us to learn. When we use to do Engine tune-up we can see the results. It is good and useful information you shared.
