The U.S. government has launched a formal investigation into the feature that Tesla has dubbed “Autopilot,” after a series of collisions with parked emergency vehicles.  Tesla’s Autopilot is actually a partially automated driving system, not a fully automated driving system as the name would suggest.

The investigation covers 765,000 vehicles, the models Y, X, S, and 3, almost every vehicle that Tesla has sold in the U.S. since the beginning of the 2014 model year. Of the crashes that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigated, 17 people were injured and one was killed.
