According to Financial Times, the upcoming $1.1 billion Tesla Gigafactory at Austin, Texas, which would produce Cybertruck, Semi truck, Model 3 sedan, and Model Y mid-size SUV, is looking to hire more than 10,000 people through 2022. Musk had earlier announced in July that the construction work is proceeding rapidly on the company’s newest manufacturing facility. According to a report by Austin American-Statesman, if Tesla will hire 10,000 workers then it will be double the minimum number of hires the company had promised earlier, which was 5,000.
In a new tweet, he urged people to move – and also the need to build more housing for his potential employees.
The carmaker`s shares, up nearly 8% in pre-market trading, were on track to hit their highest in over a month. The electric-car maker said on Friday it was encouraged by the strong reception of its Model Y crossover in China and it was quickly progressing to full production capacity. Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk`s personal wealth has been boosted by a more than eight-fold surge in the stock`s value last year, even though its production is just a fraction of rivals such as Toyota Motor, Volkswagen and General Motors. Tesla delivered 184,800 vehicles globally during the first quarter of 2021, above estimates of 177,822 vehicles, according to Refinitiv data. Tesla`s shares were at $713 before the bell, while other EV makers, including NIO Inc, Workhorse Group and Xpeng Inc were up about 3%, Reuters added.
