Comments from German executives now reported by Reuters suggest that over the past several months, Tesla has been able to find and hire talent at a rate of 200 to 300 people per week as competing companies struggle to find talent. Huh. The factory now employs about 9,000 people.
Despite this growth, delivery estimate timing is slipping.
Minister of Economy of Brandenburg george steinbach “She has to grow up a bit more,” reportedly in reference to waiting delivery times for the Model Y in the country.
Steinbach is hopeful that Tesla can continue to improve production efficiency as future customers await delivery of their newly ordered vehicles. After the price cut, the February-March delivery estimate came down slightly as compared to the January-March estimate.
