Tesla is finally expanding to Thailand, where preparations have been made over the past years. Wide recruitment for key positions has been opened in the country for the full-fledged operation of the store, delivery center, and service center.
Tesla continues its global expansion and now intends to settle in Thailand. An extensive new job posting confirms that the company will roll out its operations to the fullest. Jobs posting was originally seen by Johnna Crider from Teslarati. Currently, Tesla is hiring for 14 positions, all of which are located in Bangkok.

Tesla is looking to expand, so the company is trying to establish good relationships with various countries and provide customers around the world with the pleasure of owning its cars. In 2020, Tesla asked the Thai government for more information on the country's investment promotion policy and industry overview. It was even reported that officials were preparing a conference call to discuss the matter in detail.
Documents dated April 25, 2022, showed that Tesla had registered to start selling cars, solar panels, and energy storage systems in Thailand. The application was signed by Tesla's Global Senior Director of Trade Market Access, David Jon Feinstein. The company has indicated that it is registering for sales of new passenger motor vehicles, pick-up trucks, vans, and similar light motor vehicles.
Tesla cars are very attractive, primarily due to the fact that they run on electricity. In 2020, the Thai police leased seven Tesla Model 3s for use on duty. “The price is cheaper than the Benz S-Class. It is important that we do not need to worry about buying fuel, because we do not use fuel. This can significantly reduce budget expenses,” said Police Major General Torsak Sukvimol, Deputy Commissioner of the Central Investigative Police.
Despite the fact that Tesla was not officially present in Thailand, its Model 3 was one of the best-selling EVs on the market. It is logical to expect that after the manufacturer opens its stores, charging stations and service centers, sales of its cars will quickly rise.
