Elon Musk claimed that Tesla's Autopilot feature is now ten times more efficient compared to the average car and EV when it comes to preventing road accidents.
"Tesla with Autopilot engaged now approaching 10 times lower chance of accident than the average vehicle," said Elon Musk via his latest Twitter post.
His latest tweet was able to generate more than 6,000 comments, 10,000 retweets, and 100,000 likes.
