Tesla that smashed into fire authority truck was on Autopilot, driver claims

"It is not a self-driving system", Musk said.

Mr Musk is trying to fix production headaches that have slowed the roll-out of its Model 3, a mid-market vehicle seen as key to the company's success. Tesla shares fell 3 percent to close at $291.97 on Monday.

Tesla's stock price slipped Monday following another autopilot crash, this time in Utah, which the NTSB said it would investigate alongside its other now open investigation into the fatal crash of a Model X in California in March.

Another electric vehicle is off the streets after crashing into a fire truck.

And despite the company's claims that it would not need to raise money, Jonas raised his estimate for Tesla's capital raising to US$3 billion from previous US$2.5 billion, which he continues to expect in the third quarter of this year.

Musk said in Monday's email Tesla would still rapidly hire people to fill critical positions "to support the Model 3 production ramp and future product development".

Mr Musk said during a conference call earlier this month that the company was going to conduct sort of a reorganisation restructuring.

The company changed the terms of its borrowing agreement with banks to allow it to pledge its Fremont, California, auto plant as collateral.

And certainly the slogan that did come up was "Think Different" keeping in tune to what Apple had as its slogan in the late 90s. However, it has often been touted as an example of a firm that doesn't need to spy on everything that its users do.

Currently, Tesla has around 500,000 preorders for its more affordable model 3, its first mass-market electric auto. While the Model S owner's manual says drivers should not use Autopilot on city streets, it does not prohibit them from doing so.

"This is false", Musk wrote.

"It certainly needs to be better and we work to improve it every day, but flawless is the enemy of good", Musk tweeted. WSJ fails to mention that Tesla is safest vehicle on road, which would make article ridiculous. He said Tesla's record of one fatality every 512 million kilometres compared favourably with the 2017 national average of 138 million kilometres, according to safety regulators.

Tesla's record of miles driven could not be confirmed by Reuters.

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. [L5N1SL7R8] It was the latest accident involving a Tesla. Police Sgt. Samuel Winkler said the car's air bags were activated and that the Tesla's 28-year-old driver suffered a broken right ankle, while the driver of the mechanic truck didn't require treatment.

On 2 May a United States traffic safety regulator contradicted Tesla's claim that the agency had found that its Autopilot technology significantly reduced crashes.

Tesla said it had not yet received vehicle data and did not yet know the facts, including whether Autopilot was engaged.

The National Transport Safety Board is already investigating two fatal incidents involving Tesla vehicles.
