The State of California has processed a bill that goes into effect on the first day of the year 2023. it ban tesla motors and other vehicle manufacturers with ADAS systems To market its cars as “fully autonomous”.
With that said, the California State Senate Bill 1398 It has no other goal than to avoid confusing users and prevent vehicles equipped with partial automation features from being misleadingly marketed under the label of the full range.

Law is right about something, Tesla still hasn’t reached level 5 of autonomous driving
law makes all the logic in the world, as any company’s advertising campaigns might lead us to believe, the fact of the matter is that No manufacturer has reached the long-awaited Level 5 of self-drivingWhich is in line with full automation.
In this sense, Tesla’s Autopilot system does not reach that level; But Elon Musk and Tesla have been claiming this for a long time Their cars already have the hardware that would allow them to provide autonomous driving Level 5 in the future.
Like autonomous driving systems from other motor companies, Tesla’s SUV rdriver needs attention Must take charge of permanent and occasional driving.
For his part, Tesla naturally argues his opposition to the bill signed by California Governor Gavin Newsom The company already warns its customers of the limitations Autopilot system.
Despite this setback at home, the world’s largest electric carmaker has had better luck in other countries; For example GermanyWhere? A Court Agreed With Elon Musk For Use Of The Word “Autopilot” For the help system that assembles the company’s cars.
