Musk: Tesla is building engineering team for Shanghai plant
U.S. electric vehicle maker Tesla Inc. is establishing a “major” engineering team in China for its Shanghai assembly plant, according to Ceo Elon Musk. The team will focus on developing software for the factory and its products.
«This includes original engineering of new factory processes and cars. Great engineers will only join if original engineering is supported, not just job localization» Musk said in a tweet.
Factory construction is complete, equipment installation has begun and production is on track to launch.
After the plant begins production, its capacity will gradually increase to around 3,000 vehicles a week. The first product will be the Model 3 sedan.
