The hats are great but they only hold only beers. What are you supposed to do after you've driven twenty miles?
I'm (obviously) not a lawyer. Do you keep a right to sue if you've agreed to binding arbitration? Are there any circumstances where you'd lose that right?
There are two approaches. The Google approach is to slowly and carefully ramp up the capability of your cars, in a controlled environment, while you iron out the kinks. The Tesla approach is to combine autopilot with ludicrous mode and throw it out nationwide to see what happens.
But probably not this time. The real liability will come when an autopilot car takes out some innocent driver in another vehicle. The other driver won't have given up any right to sue. From Wikipedia: Joint and several liability is most relevant in tort claims, whereby a plaintiff may recover all the damages from any of the defendants regardless of their individual share of the liability. The rule is often applied in negligence cases, though it is sometimes invoked in other areas of law.
First they'd have to prove they could make them for $35K. Nothing in their past history indicates they can do that.
Complete failure? When's the last time you made $100K on an overnight commodity futures trade? How many Saudi princes have given you a million dollars to your charity/slush fund?
"almost Free "fuel"
That includes the free, non-polluting, magic electricity to charge the batteries.
Yes, falling battery prices are sure to drive gigafactory profits up (thank god for non-GAAP accounting),
I see you're admiring the new Teslas. Not only do they look great but they're probably the safest cars on the road - thanks to our unique autopilot option. Just engage it and let your car drive itself. The onboard cameras see almost everything in front of and behind the car making that one less thing for you to worry about. And autopilot is smart enough to know you'll not always want to drive at some posted speed limit. When you're in the mood you can really let'er rip. We didn't put that ludicrous mode in there to keep you at sixty-five. You should check out some of the great videos on YouTube. There's probably even more information in our manual if you're into fine print.
They should certainly be expected to. But Musk may refuse and announce the disengagement as a "new safety feature".
