Tesla’s Autopilot experienced its safest quarter since release, according to the company’s quarterly safety report.
The report showed that vehicles operating on Autopilot were involved in an accident one time for every 4.68 million miles driven. That performance bested Q4 2019, where Tesla logged one accident for every 3.07 million miles.
Tesla said owners who drove without Autopilot but use Tesla’s active safety features experienced an accident every 1.99 million miles. Accidents with no Autopilot or active safety features occurred every 1.42 million miles.
Tesla notes that National Highway Transportation Safety Administration data suggests crashes occur once every 479,000 miles on average.
