Consumers who paid for Autopilot before January 24, 2017 will receive $280, and the number decreases steadily the later people bought their cars or paid for the upgrade.
The Tesla owners said they paid an extra $5,000 to have their cars equipped with the Autopilot software with additional safety features such as automated emergency braking and side collision warning.
"Since rolling out our second generation of Autopilot hardware in October 2016, we have continued to provide software updates that have led to a major improvement in Autopilot functionality", the company said, adding that the settlement would be offered to customers worldwide.
It is notable that Tesla has refused to agree to one of the seemingly reasonable requests of the plaintiffs - that it reimburse them the cost of the system - another pointer that the company is rapidly running out of money.
U.S. District Judge Beth Labson Freeman must approve the deal to bring the case to a close.
Tesla that crashed into vehicle backfires truck in Utah was driven by a lady who usually took her hands off from the wheel as the auto was on "Autopilot" mode.
"Starting with the very name Autopilot, Tesla has consistently and deceptively hyped its technology", said John Simpson, Consumer Watchdog's Privacy and Technology Project Director.
The case, which was filed in 2017, initially involved six owners of Tesla Model S and Model X cars in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey and California. They also claimed Tesla violated unfair competition and consumer protection laws.
That is a new development amid the investigation of the May 11 crash, in which the driver of the Tesla suffered a broken ankle.
Data from the Model S electric vehicle show it picked up speed for 3.5 seconds before crashing into the firetruck in suburban Salt Lake City, the report said.
'What's actually awesome about this accident is that a Model S hit a fire truck at 60 miles per hour and the driver only broke an ankle, ' Musk tweeted.
The police report, which was obtained Thursday through an open records request, provides detail about the vehicle's actions immediately before the May 11 crash and the driver's familiarity with its system.
It is thought the vehicle then automatically sped up to its preset of 60 miles per hour (97 kph) without noticing the stopped cars ahead of it.
The vehicle's 29-year-old driver had told police she was on her phone prior to the crash - which resulted in her breaking a foot - and thought the Tesla's automatic emergency braking system would stop before the auto hit anything.
Lommatzsch said the vehicle did not provide any audio or visual warnings before colliding with the firetruck which happened on on May 11 on the Utah highway.
Lommatzsch told the police her Model S was traveling with Autopilot activated and she had been looking at her phone at the time of the crash.
