Tesla Reveals Car Data Of Angry Shanghai Protestor
The side airbags never deployed because they didn’t “reach the threshold” necessary for deployment. Zhang, meanwhile, believes Tesla messed with her car’s data to cover its own tracks, but the carmaker claims that’d be impossible because its vehicle data is recorded using encryption technology. This means it can’t be read, changed, or deleted. Tesla counters Zhang’s claims with raw data which, as it interprets, that she was not operating the car at the designated speed limit.
Neither side refuses to budge from their respective claims. Even though Zhang’s protest went viral on Chinese and Western social media, it’s doubtful it’ll have any negative impact on Tesla’s popularity in the world’s biggest automotive market.
