Does Tesla have automatic "call the ambulance in case of wreck" telematics ie MBZ?

    Anyone know this? If not, is it a feature promised on the software update list? Years ago my dear mother unintentionally ran a red in my BMW 545i - which I'd had only two months - and tapped another car. The impact was enough to set off the car's telematics system (which she didn't even know the car had) and moments later a disembodied voice in a call center was speaking to her - asking if she was okay, etc.

    It just occurred to me today that I had assumed Model S has this Onstar/Teleaid type of telematics but then I looked at their site and can't find anything about it.

    I believe the car contacts Tesla. Many who have been in accidents where airbags deploy report receiving a call from Tesla shortly after the incident.

    Thanks - weird that it isn't a feature listed on the safety specs on their website.

    May not be worth the liability to list it.
