Elon Musk says Tesla will be 'thoroughly reorganised'

United States police said it was unknown if the car's autopilot feature was on at the time.

The U.S. agency also is looking into the performance of the company's semi-autonomous Autopilot system after a Tesla Model X SUV crashed into a barrier on a California highway.

On Twitter on Monday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk responded to a Wall Street Journal report that claimed Tesla chose not to include eye-tracking technology on its vehicles because it cost too much and would not be effective.

In order to meet the goal, Musk said last month that all Model 3 production would begin working around the clock.

Earlier it was reported that the city of CULVER city, California Tesla on autopilot crashed into the auto by firefighters. While Tesla management believes the Model 3's margin falling below the company's 25 per cent target will prove to be temporary, Jonas said the headwinds are more structural.

On 2 May Musk said Tesla would conduct "a reorganisation restructuring" during May, without providing more details.

"Tesla makes it clear that drivers should always watch the road in front of them and be prepared to take corrective actions".

"This is false", Musk wrote.

Despite the rocky relationship between Tesla and the NTSB, agency spokesperson Keith Holloway said he's still uncertain as to whether the agency will open an investigation into the accident. "Eyetracking rejected for being ineffective, not for cost".

Everyone at Tesla is not only encouraged, but expected, to provide criticism and feedback to ensure that we're creating the best, safest cars on the road.

The Bellinzona city fire brigade reportedly pulled from its Facebook page a comment that suggested the vehicle's lithium ion batteries could have triggered a phenomenon involving a "rapid and unstoppable increase in temperature" before Thursday's accident. Police said the driver, who suffered a broken ankle, said she had been using Autopilot before the crash.

The incident involving the Tesla Model S occurred on May 11 in South Jordan, Utah, when an unidentified 28-year-old female ran a red light and crashed into the back of another vehicle at 60 miles per hour. If you are driving a Tesla equipped with Autopilot hardware, you are 3.7 times less likely to be involved in a fatal accident.

This is not the first time a Tesla has collided with a fire engine while its Autopilot mode was engaged.

The NTSB and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are investigating at least two other crashes involving Tesla vehicles.
