The Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (Federal Motor Transport Authority) is reportedly assessing whether the technology, which Tesla offers as an upgrade, is safe to use on German roads.
The regulator is also in talks with the Netherlands’ vehicle agency, which is responsible for approving vehicle use across Europe, according to the report.
Tesla and the KBA did not immediately respond to a CNBC request for comment.
