If it happened at another company, the story might be surprising. But with an impulsive CEO like Elon Musk, anything can happen

Tesla recently caused a stir by laying off about 10% of its workforce. This includes 500 employees in the Supercharger charging station field.

However, due to the need to maintain the network and fulfill obligations due to the $17 million federal grant, Tesla may need to bring back former employees. At least a portion of those 500 employees.

At the time of the firing, Tesla CEO Elon Musk wrote on X: “Tesla still plans to grow the Supercharger network, just at a slower pace for new locations and more focused on existing locations.” Have”.

When someone asked about a Supercharger charging station, Elon Musk said: “It will definitely open. The locations under construction will be completed, and we will add Supercharger stations wherever they are.” missing”.

In addition, according to Politico (America’s leading newspaper focusing on government-related issues), Tesla also received a grant worth $17 million to complete additional charging stations.

When this information appeared, it was surprising. Because how Tesla can do that without employees is still a big question mark.

According to Bloomberg, this electric car manufacturer is negotiating to hire back some people in the Supercharger team.

That seems to be the best way for Tesla to fulfill its obligations and maintain operations. The company can absolutely hire new employees or sign seasonal contracts, but someone will need to “point the finger from the beginning”. Meanwhile, even the person who was instrumental in bringing the Supercharger charging station to a historic agreement was fired.

In fact, in addition to Tesla, several other companies also received this funding. Tesla received $17 million to build 41 stations across the United States. And Francis Energy received 30.4 million USD. However, they plan to only build 37 stations with this amount of money.

The reason for this difference is unknown. But with the dismissal of all relevant employees, it is now a matter of whether Tesla will receive this $17 million or not.

Carscoops page sought to contact Tesla to clarify the story. However, because the company does not have a public relations department, it can only rely on Elon Musk’s social media posts or Tesla leaders proactively talking to the press.
