Tesla set to ramp up production at Fremont plant

The plan to boost production is a show of confidence by Tesla in the sustainability of demand for the Model 3.

WASHINGTON: Tesla Inc is poised to increase production at its California car plant and is back in hiring mode, according to an internal email sent days after the company wrapped up a record quarter of deliveries.

The electric-car maker is “making preparations” to raise output at its factory in Fremont, California, Jerome Guillen, Tesla’s automotive president, wrote Tuesday. “While we can't be too specific in this email, I know you will be delighted with the upcoming developments.”

After several rounds of job cuts announced by Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk over the past year, Guillen also told employees that Tesla is hiring. “As we continue to ramp up production, please tell your friends and neighbors that we have lots of exciting new positions open, both in Fremont and at Giga,” he wrote, referring to the company's battery factory near Reno, Nevada.

Tesla’s shares rose as much as 2.3% to $235.40 in premarket trading. A copy of the email was seen by Bloomberg, and a Tesla spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to a voicemail or email seeking comment.
