Tesla is now releasing its fourth quarter 2022 safety report. The number of miles between accidents for Tesla Autopilot decreased in the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to the previous quarter, but improved compared to the fourth quarter of 2021.
According to Tesla's records,Autopilot users crashed an average of one car every 4.85 million miles in the fourth quarter;Tesla has a record of one crash every 1.4 million miles driven by drivers not using its Autopilot technology.
The most recent NHTSA and FHWA data available (from 2021) show that there is about one crash every 652,000 miles in the United States.
For comparison,Tesla's AP feature has significantly reduced accident rates for owners,And even without AP, Tesla's "accident rate" is well below the American average.
It's worth noting, however, that cars are mostly driving on highways and urban expressways when Autopilot is enabled. Therefore, it is easy to accumulate more mileage.
On complex urban roads, Autopilot is mostly turned off. At the same time, accidents are more likely to occur in urban areas due to dense traffic flow and diverse road conditions. Therefore, Tesla vehicles are more likely to have accidents during the shorter accumulated mileage.
Therefore, for the "vehicle data report" released by Tesla, consumers should also be rational and dialectical.
