  • Even if Tesla’s flaws are at the heart of all the problems, it would be natural for other companies also come into the government’s sights, after all. they also offer similar solutions to the Elon Musk automaker and support factories in the United States. The request made by the NHTSA department specializing in faults and investigations requires all the data from manufacturers that have to do with level 2 autonomous driving systems.
