美国电动汽车巨头特斯拉将裁员9%的全球员工。

“作为这项工作的一部分,以及降低成本和实现盈利的需求,我们已经做出了让公司全体同事中约百分之九的困难决定,”马斯克在给员工的电子邮件中说。

“这些削减几乎完全是由我们的工薪人群完成的,并没有包括生产伙伴,所以这不会影响我们在未来几个月实现模式3生产目标的能力。”

在发给员工的电子邮件中,马斯克说特斯拉在过去几年中的快速增长导致了一些角色和工作职能的重复。

随着现金燃烧速度的加快,特斯拉公布季度亏损最严重

今年5月,特斯拉公布了其有史以来最大的季度亏损,当时它宣布了第一季度业绩,公司损失了20亿美元的市值。

马斯克还表示,他的公司不会与零售商Home Depot续签住宅销售协议,以专注于在特斯拉商店和在线销售太阳能。

“在Home Depot工作的特斯拉大多数员工将有机会转移到特斯拉的零售地点,”马斯克说。

Tesla to lay off 9% of workers as part of restructuring plan

U.S. electric car giant Tesla is laying off nine per cent of its global workforce.

“As part of this effort, and the need to reduce costs and become profitable, we have made the difficult decision to let go of approximately nine per cent of our colleagues across the company,” Musk said in an email to employees.

“These cuts were almost entirely made from our salaried population and no production associates were included, so this will not affect our ability to reach Model 3 production targets in the coming months.”

Tesla posts worst ever quarterly loss as cash burn accelerates.

In May, Tesla posted its biggest-ever quarterly loss when it announced first quarter results and then it lost $2 billion in market capitalization.

Musk also said his company will not renew its residential sales agreement with retailer Home Depot in order to focus on selling solar power in Tesla stores and online.

“The majority of Tesla employees working at Home Depot will be offered the opportunity to move over to Tesla retail locations,” Musk said.
