Thanks so much to all our Automatic Private Beta drivers! We appreciate all of the feedback you've given us so far. We read all of it and based on your great insights, we've decided to tweak the way we calculate the drive score.

New Drive Score
The drive score ranges from 1-100. In the past, it was possible for you to get a score near zero for one particular type of driving behavior (speeding, hard braking, or hard accelerating). Now, half the new score’s points are allocated to speeding, and the other half are allocated to braking/accelerating.

That means the lowest score you can get by speeding alone is 50. Similarly, if you accelerate or brake hard a lot but never speed, you’ll never do worse than 50. Only by doing all three behaviors (a lot!) will your score go below 50.

The new drive score formula is now live! Past weeks’ scores will be recalculated if you logout, then log back in.

One more thing
The speeding, accelerating, and braking thresholds Automatic uses are the same for every car. Different cars have different optimum speeds, so it is possible for a driver to get great MPGs but a low drive score. Thanks for your feedback about this. We recognize it’s an issue and are looking into how to address it.

Thanks again for all of your great feedback! Please keep it coming.
