Just proves that idiots can own and drive these.

If you try and do this the dash lights up and alarms sound.

Also, you have to be pretty close to things to catch the doors.

Morons.

I did wonder if there was some sort of alarm screaming at them. Niro has a hissy fit if I switch on without first putting on the seatbelt never mind driving off with the doors open.

Even if the alarm wasn鈥檛 sounding for whatever reason, how could you not notice that you had a rear door open in an EV?

But yes, autopilot, maybe the driver was in the back too? 馃お馃槀

I'd expect autopilot to refuse to go if any door was open. That's ridiculous. Arguably the car should refuse even under manual control.

No doubt some would then say it was ridiculous if a faulty door sensor stopped the car from driving under manual control..

Also if you are say just moving a few feet, then it saves closing all the doors.

It's as if some people want this car to drive itself! ;)

Yes, let's not lose sight of the fact that the driver of the Tesla was a brainless idiot who should never be allowed to be responsible for a car again. And it all has nothing to do with Tesla or EVs.

Tesla Car slams into bus with distinct 鈥榝alcon wing鈥 door open

Zero to do with Tesla - it could happen in a Delorean too. I suppose it gets the clicks though.
