Here’s Why You Might Not Be Able To Buy A Tesla In California Soon

The California CMV is accusing Tesla of falsely advertising its autopilot technology in two complaints that could impact the company’s ability to sell cars in the state.

The New York Times says the agency is accusing Tesla of misleading customers by claiming in advertisements that vehicles equipped with its Autopilot and Full Self-Driving Capability programs were autonomous.

If the agency’s complaints to the state’s Office of Administrative Hearings are successful, Tesla’s licenses to make and sell vehicles in California could be suspended or revoked.

Tesla says the programs that can steer, brake and accelerate the company’s cars on its own are designed mainly for use on highways, and the company’s documentation requires active driver supervision, with drivers keeping their hands on the wheel and take control of the car should the system malfunction.
