Tesla, which disbanded its public relations department in 2020, did not respond to a request for comment. The automaker has contended in the past that its driver-assistance feature suite, Autopilot, is safer than typical driving when crash data is compared.

Tesla’s chief executive, Elon Musk, has called Autopilot “unequivocally safer.”
