Tesla's Delivery Team Gutted in Recent Job Cuts

Elon Musk says 'Sentry Mode' will start rolling out next week

The automaker more than halved the division that supplies it's electric vehicles to North America and it's share of customers, as it was reported by the two workers who were laid-off.

It looks likely that the screen inside Tesla cars will also show a warning that Dog Mode is enabled so passersby don't feel the need to smash its windows if they see children or pets inside on a hot summer's day.

San Francisco: Electric vehicle maker Tesla, which officially started deliveries of its Model 3 in Europe late last month, is facing some delays as several buyers were turned away from its Tilburg factory despite being invited to collect their vehicles.

With the launch of the new battery pack option, Tesla is making several changes to the Model 3's option structure.

Tesla declined to comment on the job reductions in the delivery team.

Beijing insists on ‘indisputable sovereignty’ over islands
Vietnam, the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia and Taiwan all have competing claims for territory in the region. In January, the destroyer USS McCampbell challenged China's claims to the Paracel Islands.

In a Twitter post, the Tesla Chief Executive, Elon Must wrote, "the company is doing everything we can to drop the Model 3 base price to $35,000, without credits". That helped send Tesla shares up nearly 15 percent over the following six weeks. Even with two price cuts this year, the lowest price tag on a Model 3 is now $42,900.

The decision for offering a more affordable version of the Tesla Model 3 came after nearly a month of opening up the ordering process to the general public.

The two laid-off employees said delivery targets for North America - made up of mostly USA buyers - this quarter would be 55 percent to 60 percent of what they were in the last quarter of 2018.

If Tesla does not cut its prices soon, it risks losing potential customers - and ones already on its reservation list - to a storm of German and Asian competitors whose electric automobiles will hit the USA market this year, increasing the competition and eventually establishing a stronghold in the market. Tesla is set to introduce a new crossover type vehicle in March this year the Model Y as reported in a recent Digital Journal article.
