Tesla Lays Off Super Charger Division

“Elon Musk’s decision to lay off the majority of Tesla’s 500-person electric vehicle (EV) charging team, except for a few reassigned employees, has “blindsided” other carmakers who were depending on Tesla’s infrastructure for their new EVs, industry officials and analysts told Reuters on Tuesday.”

Curious how this will affect both EVs in the future as well as lease deals :joy:

This doesn’t mean the end of tesla charging or the end of tesla charging expansion.

Tesla is gonna crash, mark my words.

They won the charger wars, so why pay high paid staff to take care of the superchargers? just hire some interns


Ooops, apparently supercharging is hard :stuck_out_tongue:

I doubt it’s cheap getting those back LOL, I will need at least 30% more pay + 50% retention bonus and will definitely jump on the first opportunity.


If they wanna come back lol

After they get fired people start stealing the charger cables.


It will. And then it will increase by 3X as much. Then crash. Rinse and repeat.

History doesn’t repeat but it does rhyme.

People would happily take it to look for other jobs. Tesla is known to be a shit employer in tech anyway, so if people were there, it’s either because of golden handcuffs or they never had the talent to leave.

Seems like another one of Elon’s temper tantrums - You dare to push back? I’ll fire your whole org to establish dominance.
