  • A Tesla has gotten into an accident. One not-so-surprising detail that happens to accompany many of these accidents is that autopilot was reportedly engaged at some point before the accident occurred. This particular accident does not stray from that pattern, as a driver claims his Model S lost control after having autopilot activated in his 2016 Tesla Model S.
  • Over the weekend in Kandiyohi County, Minnesota, a Model S ended up on its roof in a marsh with a driver and four other occupants in the car according to reports made by a local news station.
  • Everyone made it out safe and sound, thankfully only sustaining minor injuries. What happens to be interesting about this particular crash is that the owner is reportedly blaming his Model S’ autopilot feature for causing the accident altogether.
  • The accident occurred at a “T” intersection where the Tesla would have needed to make either a left or right turn. The vehicle then reportedly veered off of the road and flipped over into the marsh.
  • Registrations of Tesla vehicles in California, by far the largest market of the luxury electric car maker, fell 24 per cent in April from a year ago, according to data from IHS Markit.
  • The findings come as investors worry that demand for Tesla’s luxury Model S sedan is waning ahead of the mass market Model 3 launch.
  • Tesla last week reported first-half global deliveries of its Model S and its Model X SUV at the low end of its own forecast, driving down the stock and raising questions about demand for the older models.
