Tesla Undergoing Lawsuit for Allegedly Falsely Advertising
Nov. 6, 2019—Tesla is facing an injunction by a consumer protection agency in Germany over what they believe are false claims about the capabilities of its Autopilot and “Full Self-Driving” packages, according to Electrek.
According to the lawsuit, Tesla is giving the impression that vehicles can and should drive autonomously by the end of 2019.
The Wettbewerbszentrale believes that it’s impossible to deliver the feature due to regulations in Germany:
In fact, however, these announcements cannot be fulfilled because some of the functions mentioned in Germany are not yet legally permitted in road traffic and will not be allowed until the end of 2019. The consumer could thus just no vehicle with the function for example, a ‘driving in urban areas’ or an ‘automatic driving on highways’ get.
