Elon Musk Says Tesla Model S Crash Media Coverage Is 'Messed Up'

Swiss Tesla accident: crash may have sparked battery fire

"The number one issue at the heart of the Tesla investment debate is whether the company is now operating at a low level of utilization of a very large industrial complex, where incremental revenue can bring large incremental gross margins and improvement of cash consumption, or the next 50-100% of growth in revenue brings forth other calls on cash and does not materially move the company in the direction of a fully self-funding existence", they wrote. According to Wall Street Journal, he has joined Waymo's safety team that is headed by Ron Medford.

Tesla co-founder Elon Musk has slammed recent coverage of a road traffic collision involving one of his company's electric vehicles, which was reportedly on autopilot mode.

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. Waymo said on Sunday that Matthew Schwall had joined it from Tesla, where he was its main technical contact with USA safety investigators, and last week Tesla said senior vice president of engineering Doug Field was taking time off to recharge.

On 2 May Musk said Tesla would conduct "a reorganisation restructuring" during May, without providing more details.

Investors gave Mr Musk some rare criticism after the call in which he referred to one analyst as a boring bonehead.

The driver of a Tesla electric auto which crashed into the back of a fire engine on Saturday says she had the vehicle's semi-autonomous Autopilot mode engaged and was looking at her phone when the accident occurred. Witnesses indicated the Tesla Model S did not brake prior to impact. The driver of the fire truck was evaluated for whiplash but was not checked into the hospital.

The 48-year-old died when his Tesla caught fire after he slammed into a crash barrier on the A2 motorway in southern Ticino. Autopilot, a form of advanced cruise control, handles some driving tasks and warns those behind the wheel they are always responsible for the vehicle's safe operation.

Police said they had been in contact with the National Transportation Safety Board about the crash.

Since the driver was not fully focused on the road, it is unlikely that the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and National Transport Safety Board (NTSB) will investigate the accident, the newspaper says.
