Elon Musk Addresses Tesla Pileup in Netflix’s ‘Leave the World Behind’

Netflix’s New Movie Raises Concerns About Tesla Cars

Elon Musk is attempting to address concerns raised by a new Netflix movie called “Leave the World Behind” that depicts Tesla cars driving themselves into a massive pileup. The scene shows a road leading back to NYC during a mass power outage and possible cyber attack. The cars in the movie are all white Model 3 Teslas, which crash into each other without any human control.

The scene highlights the high-tech self-driving capabilities of Tesla vehicles, but it also raises concerns about the potential risks associated with such advanced technology. Musk, however, tried to downplay these fears by reassuring people that Teslas can charge from solar panels even in a doomsday scenario where there is no more gasoline.

While Musk’s response may provide some comfort, it fails to address the underlying issue: the fact that these cars can drive on their own. The scene in the movie depicts a nightmare scenario where hackers take control of the Teslas and send them crashing into each other. This raises questions about the safety and security of autonomous vehicles.

There have been reports of Teslas getting into accidents, allegedly while in autopilot mode. While it is unclear if the self-driving feature was to blame in these incidents, it highlights the need for further research and development to ensure the safety of autonomous vehicles.

Netflix seems to have capitalized on these fears and turned them into a horror movie, albeit for just one scene. The movie does not entirely focus on the issue of “too-smart cars,” but it does serve as a highlight. It is worth mentioning Julia Roberts’ driving skills in the film.

In conclusion, while Elon Musk’s reassurances about Teslas’ ability to charge from solar panels are comforting, they do not fully address the concerns raised by the movie. The scene underscores the potential risks associated with self-driving technology and the need for further advancements to ensure the safety and security of autonomous vehicles.
