Tesla has released its new Autopilot safety report for the second quarter of 2019 and added more data about fire events.

It’s the automaker’s fourth report since launching this new initiative in response to what the company saw as unfair coverage of accidents involving its vehicles by the media.

They claim a similar unfair situation with fires involving their vehicles hence why they added a section about it.

Tesla’s first safety report was released in October of last year for the third quarter 2018.

At the time, Tesla said that it registered “one accident per 3.34 million miles driven in which drivers had Autopilot engaged.”

For its fourth quarter report, Tesla changed its approach and instead launched a micro site for the vehicle safety report.

The accidents per mile have been going up over the last few quarters.

Today, Tesla has now released its report for the second quarter of 2019 and there was a big improvement.

For this quarter, Tesla also added a new comparison with its vehicles that are not equipped with Autopilot or any active safety feature.

Tesla says that there was a Tesla vehicle fire for every 170 million miles traveled between 2012 and 2018.
