Tesla Model X Crashes Into Building At High Speed, Driver Blames Autopilot

Another Tesla has crashed, this time a Model X, and the driver blames the car’s “autonomous sudden acceleration.”

Tesla Model X owner Puzant Ozbag says that while entering a parking lot in a mall, the car suddenly accelerated on its own at full speed then crashed into a building.

He shared his experience (with pictures) at the official Tesla forum over the weekend (via Electrek):

Our 5 day old Tesla X today while entering a parking stall suddenly and unexpectedly accelerated at high speed on its own climbing over 39 feet of planters and crashing into a building.

The airbags deployed and my wife’s arms have burn marks as a consequence.

This could have easily been a fatal accident if the car’s wheels were not turned slightly to the left. If they were straight, it would have gone over the planters and crashed into the store in front of the parking stall and injured or killed the patrons

Check out the crash photos below.


So are Teslas really safe? They’re so popular and everyone wants one.
