The companies in question have all failed to pay their taxes according to EU standards. EU won't allow American multinationals to operate tax free. Sorry, there are no free rides.
The US works with bribes. European countries are more likely to hold bribes against you. They will then triple the amount owed to make it hurt. (remember the number $1.5bn -- it will come up again)

Tesla's coverage of these incidents is a smear campaign.
GM, Ford and Chrysler experienced hundreds of vehicle accidents in the same time span.
In 2014, there were 32,675 deaths by vehicle incident. Not one of those is getting the same attention as these Tesla reports. Why?
Because the media is in the pockets of Big Auto. Every day in 2014, there were almost 90 deaths in all the other car manufacturers vehicles. I'm counting only two accidents in Tesla vehicles. That's actually quite good!
"Autopilot is an assist feature that requires you to keep your hands on the steering wheel at all times," Tesla said.
