Tesla Escalates Layoffs at Shanghai Gigafactory Amid Tough EV Market

Tesla intensifies layoffs across various departments at its Shanghai Gigafactory as competition in the electric vehicle market grows fiercer.

According to sources quoted by Bloomberg on May 9, Tesla is intensifying layoffs in China to face fierce competition in the electric vehicle market.

The layoffs, which began earlier this week, impact various departments at Tesla’s Shanghai Gigafactory, including customer service, engineering, production lines, and logistics teams.

The extent of the layoffs and their future implications are currently undisclosed, and Tesla’s representatives in China have not yet responded to requests for comments.

Sources reveal that most employees affected by this round of layoffs will receive severance pay plus three months of salary. Some dismissed employees were escorted out by management, while others left the premises collectively by shuttle bus.

Globally, more executives are leaving Tesla. The company has also cut a significant portion of its 500-person supercharging team and a newly formed marketing group.

Moreover, just weeks before the start of its internship program, Tesla canceled recruitment activities.

As of May 8, Tesla’s North American hiring website listed only three positions, all part of a seven-week training program in Texas, California, or Nevada.

On May 1, Tesla had listed over 3,400 positions in the U.S., Mexico, Canada, and Puerto Rico, mainly in California, Texas, and Nevada, many of which remained open until May 7.
