Tesla’s delivery team gutted in recent job cuts

Tesla’s delivery team gutted in recent job cuts

As Tesla CEO and founder Elon Musk noted in May 2018, the EV maker has planned the Model 3 in such a way as to minimise disruption to its assembly lines when switching to RHD production.

A Tesla Model 3 vehicle is displayed during a media preview at the Auto China 2018 motor show in Beijing, China April 25, 2018.

A US federal tax credit began phasing out for Tesla in January, effectively raising the price of cars by $3,750.

This will come in addition to the Cabin Overheat Protection, a feature released in 2016 that ensures the cabin temperature does not exceed 40.5°C up to 12 hours after you leave your auto.

As Tesla gears up to expand into Europe and China, investors and analysts are now focused on the demand trends experienced by the company in all of its markets.

Yet despite the shaky numbers and a lackluster outlook, some say the company is on the right path.




Musk's stay in Norway was part of a broader trip through Europe that the CEO advertised on Twitter on February 9 as the company is deploying its new Model 3 on the continent after a tumultuous year in 2018.

Musk was no longer in Norway on February 11, the spokesman said. "You grow to understand those quite soon after owning an electric vehicle".

The mad rush to blow out Model 3s at the end of the year has left Tesla with very few Model 3s to deliver.

Elon Musk, the CEO from Tesla, received a tweet from a person owning a Tesla Model S, asking when will the cars get the Sentru mode. The company remained in the black in the next quarter as well, although it is not completely out of the woods as it also announced job cuts of 7 percents in order to make its cars more cost-competitive.

Having met that number already, the U.S. tax credit for Tesla buyers drops in half to $3,750 for the first six months of 2019, then falls by half again in the second six months.

We are still waiting for Tesla to release the base Tesla Model 3 model which they promised since the beginning but there have been no details on when that would be release.
