Reuters exclusively reported that Tesla is under criminal investigation in the United States over claims the company’s electric vehicles can drive themselves. The U.S. Department of Justice probe, which started last year but was previously undisclosed, focuses on whether Tesla misled consumers, investors, and regulators by making unsupported claims about its driver assistance technology. The Justice Department investigation potentially represents a more serious level of scrutiny because of the possibility of criminal charges against Tesla or individual executives.
