Tesla is constantly updating its cars, so look for more software updates coming to the Model 3 in upcoming months as well.
Tesla is ramping up production of its all-important small auto. The driver admitted to police she was looking at her phone just prior to the crash, and Tesla does alert drivers using Autopilot that they need to be ready to take control of the vehicle at any moment.
"These cars can't drive themselves, but it's too easy for consumers to think they can", says William Wallace, senior policy analyst for Consumers Union, the advocacy division of Consumer Reports. He slashed his price target due to troubles in the electric vehicle maker's production process for the wallet-friendly Model 3, which has experienced production delays.
Ensuring that drivers stay engaged and alert when using Autopilot is extremely important.
"That's why we made so many steps to improve this process over time", - said Tesla.

Tesla has since pushed back its 20,000 units/month production goal to the end June of 2018. "Approx 4X better than avg", Musk said. In a couple of recent tweets Musk downplayed the accident itself, emphasizing the fact that the only injury the Tesla driver had sustained was a broken ankle, when, he argued, it would have been much worse in any other auto.
