Crash prevention vs lessening crash

edited November -1 in Model X
One of the things I don't fully understand is why Tesla doesn't have full crash prevention software unlike many of the new cars and instead offers to lessen the impact, I would prefer not to have an accident over having one but with less impact, would someone explain the reason for this?

    Actually if you look at the manuals for these non-Tesla cars, you'll likely find in the fine print that AEB is not assured to work in every case. Tesla is just being a bit more honest and upfront about how it really works to set expectations correctly.

    Now there are some cars that have a bit better AEB than Tesla, and some that are worse. Here's a real-world comparison test of four cars that may be helpful to understand it more: https://www.caranddriver.com/features/a24511826/safety-features-automatic-braking-system-tested-explained/

    In addition, Tesla is the only one that can get better over time with OTA updates. The others are never going to get better.
