It said that using such terms could compel people to sit back and that could prove to be unsafe. "Additionally, it is claimed that would be legal in Germany, which isn't the case", the court said in a statement.

Citing the Munich court's ruling, CUCS also urged the Korean government to conduct an investigation.

Tesla has been banned from repeating the misleading claims.

Under the heading "by the end of the year", Tesla added its cars would be able to recognise traffic lights and automatically stop and start driving in urban areas.

Tesla's Autopilot combines adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist with various other safety systems and can perform driving tasks for extended stretches with little or no human intervention, however it is not an autonomous driving system and Tesla does state that the driver must remain in control of the vehicle at all times.

Tesla's strong position in the electric-vehicle market has made it a challenger to German carmakers.

Responding on Twitter, Tesla boss Elon Musk said the technology had been named after a term used in aviation. "Also, what about Autobahn!?"

While its name and features are consistent with the similar technology used for air travel, given a Tesla auto is more readily available to "the average consumer" than a jet plane, the court applied different standards.

However, Tesla has said it tells customers that the automated driver assistance technology does not qualify as a fully autonomous driving system.

Over the past quarter, According to the most recent investigative results by Tesla on Tesla vehicles on autopilot, they registered one accident or crash-like event for every 3.34 million miles driven in which drivers had Autopilot engaged.

There have been several examples of drivers misusing the Autopilot system in unsafe circumstances.

And in another case, an Autopilot-mode Tesla crashed into a stationary police vehicle.
