Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, has announced another round of layoffs

Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, has announced another round of layoffs. Reports suggest that the layoffs will be significant and Musk has been described as going “absolutely hard core” with them.

Elon Musk has intensified Tesla’s layoffs with reports indicating another round affecting hundreds, including senior executives and the majority of the Supercharging team. The senior director of EV charging, Rebecca Tinucci, along with most of her 500-person team, is departing, as is Daniel Ho, head of the new vehicles program, and his team. These cuts follow the recent 10 percent reduction in the workforce, with Musk indicating the possibility of more to come.

In an email to executives, Musk emphasized a need for Tesla to be “absolutely hard core” about the cuts, targeting not just executives but also their subordinates who fail to meet high standards. While the exact scale of these new layoffs remains uncertain, Bloomberg had previously suggested that the ongoing workforce reduction could reach as high as 20 percent, potentially impacting over 20,000 employees.

Tinucci played a pivotal role in expanding Tesla’s Supercharger network during her six-year tenure, including efforts to promote the North American Charging Standard (NACS) developed by Tesla to other companies. Despite the layoffs, Musk assured that Tesla will continue building new Superchargers and completing ongoing projects.

Among those affected are Daniel Ho, a ten-year Tesla veteran who led vehicle programs and new product initiatives, and the majority of the public policy team, previously headed by Rohan Patel, who departed during the earlier wave of layoffs.
