Musk says Tesla undergoing 'thorough reorganization'

Tesla Reorganisation Underway Says CEO Elon Musk Embattled Musk 'thoroughly reorganising' Tesla
Laurie Berry | 15 May, 2018, 18:41

In a couple of recent tweets Musk downplayed the accident itself, emphasizing the fact that the only injury the Tesla driver had sustained was a broken ankle, when, he argued, it would have been much worse in any other vehicle.

The reorganization announcement comes on the heels of news that a senior executive has left the company for its rival Alphabet's Waymo, and a statement from Tesla that another executive-the senior vice president for engineering-has taken some time off. Witnesses said the auto "did not brake or take any action to avoid the collision" but the driver has since admitted to police that she had been looking at her phone prior to the collision.

Investors gave a rare rebuke to Musk after he cut off financial analysts on the earnings call, sending shares down 5 percent despite promises that Model 3 production was on track.

Tesla co-founder Elon Musk has defended his company's driverless Autopilot feature after a woman broke her ankle in a crash while the system was active.

However, representatives of the company repeatedly warned the owners of electric Tesla, that when using the autopilot, they should still be careful and watch the road.

Some safety critics claim that Tesla is too lax in how it monitors driver engagement, making a comparison to General Motors' eye-tracking tech in the Cadillac CT6, but Musk says such technology isn't a viable alternative to Tesla's industry-standard monitoring of hands on the steering wheel.

"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.

The National Transportation Safety Board has not opened an investigation into the crash, spokesman Keith Holloway said, though it could decide to do so. According to police Sergeant Sam Winkler of the police Department of the city of South George, the result of the accident were crumpled front part for electric vehicle and only a broken leg for the driver.

In another Twitter message, Musk said the "probability of fatality is much lower in a Tesla", saying Tesla would begin reporting safety numbers beginning in the second quarter.

On Monday firefighters in Switzerland said a fatal accident involving a Tesla may have set off a fire in the car's battery.

Utah sedan Tesla Model S crashed on a fire truck at the traffic lights. The 28 year-old driver admitted to looking at her phone before the crash, despite the company's mandate that customers remain alert while using Autopilot, and not rely on the system entirely.

According to sources, Mr. Schwall decision to quit his job is not related to N.T.S.B.'s investigations regarding Tesla's Autopilot System.

The NTSB and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are investigating at least two other crashes involving Tesla vehicles.
