Days after another crash involving Tesla's Autopilot system and the departure two key executives, the company announced it is shutting down its Model 3 assembly line for six days at the end of this month to fix production problems.

It's not the structural design of Tesla cars at issue here, but the reliability of Autopilot. Like Autopilot, it can steer and brake.

"Ensuring that drivers remain engaged and prevented with the use of the autopilot, is extremely important". Police reiterated that warning Monday.

The brigade reportedly pulled the comment from its Facebook page, later adding that an investigation was underway and declined to comment further.

"They've been very helpful in this, very willing to send technicians out on short notice and interpret the data and get it back to us", Winkler said.

"We are making material reductions to our earnings estimates to reflect lingering manufacturing issues with the Model 3", Jonas said in a Tuesday note to clients, according to a new report.

A Tesla Model S sedan was traveling at 60 miles (97 km) per hour when it smashed into a fire truck stopped at a red light about 20 miles south of Salt Lake City, Utah, on Friday night, according to police. "An impact at that speed usually results in severe injury or death".

Tesla said it was "deeply saddened" by the accident and was working with local authorities to establish the cause.

Two 18-year-olds were trapped in the vehicle and killed in the flames.

The NTSB and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are also looking into the performance of the company's Autopilot system in the March crash of a Tesla Model X on a California highway.

The 48-year-German driver died when his auto hit the barrier in the central reservation of the A2 motorway in the southern Swiss canton of Ticino, turned over and burst into flames.

"The system worked as described, which is that it's a hands-on system. Approx 4X better than avg", Musk said. A driver was behind the wheel of the test vehicle in that case but failed to halt in time.

A USA traffic safety regulator on May 2 contradicted Tesla's claim that the agency had found that its Autopilot technology significantly reduced crashes. "And (the Tesla driver) could be facing a citation for failing to maintain control of her vehicle".
