Tesla Model X Autopilot Crash: Demonstrating The Culprit!

Elon Musk just took charge of Model 3 production saying it’s his “most critical” job right now

The first-quarter deliveries totalled 29,980 vehicles, of which 11,730 were Model S, 10,070 were Model X, and 8,180 were Model 3.

The electric car company initially planned to produce 5,000 Model 3 sedans a week by the end of 2017, but that number was quickly revised as the inexpensive vehicle's production began faltering.

Musk himself has taken direct control of Model 3 production and the company says it already has about 500,000 advance reservations from customers for the car. Tesla is still aiming for a goal of producing 5,000 Model 3 sedans a week.

In a tweet earlier this week Musk said that he is currently sleeping at the factory and that the "car biz is hell".

In the past seven days, Tesla produced 2,020 Model 3 vehicles. It was at least the third fatal crash to have occurred while Autopilot was deployed.

Tesla added that the driver, Apple engineer Walter Huang, who died in the crash, "received several visual and one audible hands-on warning" before colliding with a barrier on highway 101. The quality of those cars, it said, was "at the highest level we have seen across all our products". Tesla made 2,020 units of the Model 3 during the last seven days of Q1, well short of its 2,500 weekly target. A P/B ratio of less than 1.0 can indicate that a stock is undervalued, while a ratio of greater than 1.0 may indicate that a stock is overvalued. In the service centers on the recalled Tesla Model S will replace these parts. Under these circumstances, the company indicated that it would not need to raise additional equity or debt this year, apart from its standard credit lines.

According to Munster, Elon Musk deserves credit for steering his company through the teething pains that every other company is going to go through in the near future as they switch to the new electric technology in the auto industry.

Not all are so impressed with Tesla's results.

Musk also spoke of how he had trusted Doug, but now the policy had to be changed in order to benefit the company. Diminishing returns affect the best of us, and then new solutions will have to be found when growth rates decline.

"The reason this crash was so severe is because the crash attenuator, a highway safety barrier which is designed to reduce the impact into a concrete lane divider, had been crushed in a prior accident without being replaced".

Its share price has decline -21.83% in three months and is down -6.48% for the last five trades.
