Emails Reveal Elon Musk Oversaw Deceptive 2016 Tesla Self-Driving Video; Could Lead to Criminal Charges

If there was any doubt that Tesla CEO Elon Musk knew the company’s much-watched 2016 self-driving demo was staged, emails obtained by Bloomberg should lay that to rest. “Just want to be absolutely clear that everyone’s top priority is achieving an amazing Autopilot demo drive,” Musk wrote in an email. “Since this is a demo, it is fine to hardcode some of it, since we will backfill with production code later in an OTA update.”

Musk saw little wrong with this strategy, saying, “I will be telling the world that this is what the car *will* be able to do, not that it can do this upon receipt,” he wrote. But instead of making this clear, the video, released to the world via Musk’s Twitter account, opens instead with white text on a black background telling the viewer that “the person in the driver’s seat is only there for legal reasons. He is not doing anything. The car is driving itself.”
