Embattled Musk 'thoroughly reorganising' Tesla

This is not the first time a Tesla has collided with a fire engine while its Autopilot mode was engaged.

"To ensure that Tesla is well prepared for the future, we have been undertaking a thorough reorganization of our company".

"To be clear, we will continue to hire rapidly in critical hourly and salaried positions to support the Model 3 production ramp and future product development".

Mr Musk said the restructuring plans involve flattening the management structure to improve communication, as well as trimming activities not vital to the success of our mission.

Tesla officials and Utah police wouldn't provide additional details Monday about the Friday evening crash that left the Tesla Model S driver with a broken ankle. Autopilot, a form of advanced cruise control, handles some driving tasks and warns those behind the wheel they are always responsible for the vehicle's safe operation.

U.S. police said it was unknown if the car's autopilot feature was on at the time.

Earlier it was reported that the city of CULVER city, California Tesla on autopilot crashed into the vehicle by firefighters.

The Bellinzona city fire brigade reportedly pulled down from its Facebook page a comment a day earlier that had suggested that the vehicle's lithium-ion batteries could have triggered a phenomenon involving a "rapid and unstoppable increase in temperature" in the accident on Thursday. His sabbatical is significant: Musk has said he regards Field as "one the world's most talented" engineering executives.

In another Twitter message on Monday, Musk said the "probability of fatality is much lower in a Tesla", saying Tesla would begin reporting safety numbers from the second quarter of 2018.

Tesla has come under scrutiny for recent accident.

The crash comes as federal safety agencies investigate the performance of Tesla's semi-autonomous driving system.

The 28-year-old female driver of the auto, who is unnamed, told Utah police that the Autopilot system was switched on she was looking at her phone when her vehicle slammed into the fire engine stopped at a red light.
