Germany Asks Tesla To Rename "Misleading" Autopilot Feature

We've been saying this forever. Tesla can avoid all these issues if they just called it something that didn't imply the car can drive itself. [H] forum member spugm1r3 suggested a name change to something like "co-pilot" or the likes to more accurate reflect what the feature does.

"In order to prevent misunderstanding and incorrect customers’ expectations, we demand that the misleading term Autopilot is no longer used in advertising the system," the letter states. The Authority on Friday issued letters to Tesla owners in the country, warning them not to operate the feature without their constant attention.
