Shulou( Report-- Electric car giant Tesla is facing deceptive publicity charges from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for its Autopilot and Full Self-Driving (FSD) assistance system names. notes that Tesla has been using names like Autopilot and FSD to describe its Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) for years, raising public concerns about misleading publicity. Some people think that these names imply that Tesla cars can be fully autonomous, but in fact they are just an assisted driving system that still requires driver supervision and control.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles believes Tesla is deceptive in its use of the term "autonomous driving" and has asked Tesla to provide more data about its FSD program.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles treated the matter as a false advertising issue and launched an investigation, which Tesla should have answered long ago, but the company repeatedly delayed. Now, the Los Angeles Times has obtained Tesla's response to the investigation, which reveals a strange defense for the company.

Tesla defended itself by saying that the DMV "has been aware of Tesla's use of Autopilot and FSD names since 2014 and 2016" and "acquiesced in the use of these names." Tesla believes that since the DMV has not taken any action before, it should now allow the company to continue using these names.

Tesla also claims that restricting the use of the term violates its freedom of speech.

Apparently Tesla seems to think that misleading people about autonomous driving features is time-barred and legal over time.

At present, the California DMV is taking this matter seriously and is even considering revoking Tesla's manufacturer license in California.
