Tesla car crash – level 1

26-04-2021 07:00

The Tesla company makes semi-automated cars. This means that a special software helps the driver drive the car. Tesla has plans to make a fully automated car this year. A fully automated car can move without a driver.

An accident happens last week. It happens in Texas, US. A Tesla car crashes into a tree. It starts to burn. Firefighters stop the fire.

They see that there is no driver. A man sits next to the driver. Another man sits in the back. Both men die in the accident.

More Tesla car accidents happen recently. Officials want to check Tesla’s cars carefully. It can be a problem for Tesla’s plans for the new software. Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, is confident. He believes that the new software will be good.

Difficult words: recently (a short time ago), CEO (the boss of a company), confident (when somebody is sure about something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
