Features in Tesla Model S Sedans

June 2018: A federal judge preliminarily approved a settlement agreement. According to its terms, the company agreed to, among other things, automatically provide each class member with a monetary award of between $20 and $280, with the exact amount depending on various factors, including the company’s marketing representations at the time of the class member’s purchase, the timing and content of the releases of the company’s enhanced autopilot features, and the number of months that the class member was in possession of the car. A final fairness hearing is scheduled for October 17, 2018.

April 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Tesla Motors for allegedly falsely advertising safety and autopilot features in 2016 and 2017 Model S sedans. According to the complaint, the company advertised vehicles were designed to be the “safest” sedans on the road with safety features – such as collision avoidance and emergency braking technologies – and enhanced autopilot capabilities (which consumers paid extra money to get) when the features did not to perform the advertised tasks and instead caused vehicles to behave in unpredictable and dangerous ways. In addition, the complaint alleges that the company deceived consumers about when features would be available. (Sheikh et al v. Tesla, Inc. d/b/a Tesla Motors, Inc., Case No. 17-cv-2193, N.D. Cal.)
