The Tesla Motors autopilot is suddenly also a big safety feature. Elon Musk shared a video of a Model S owner on Twitter, that shows how autopilot avoids a collision with a truck. 

Model S owner Joshua Brown shared the amazing moment of autopilot saving him from a collision. He describes the situation: "I was driving down the interstate and you can see the boom lift truck in question on the left side of the screen on a joining interstate road. Once the roads merged, the truck tried to get to the exit ramp on the right and never saw my Tesla. I actually wasn't watching that direction and Tessy (the name of my car) was on duty with autopilot engaged. I became aware of the danger when Tessy alerted me with the "immediately take over" warning chime and the car swerving to the right to avoid the side collision."

So Tessy saved his driver from a potentially nasty collision. Watch the best advertising video for Tesla's Autopilot feature imaginable.
