Tesla Giga Shanghai continues to increase production capacity to meet the demand for Model 3, not only in the Chinese market, but also in markets outside the country. This continued growth will also be critical, both for achieving Tesla's target for delivery of 500,000 vehicles in 2020, and for further development in 2021. To meet the growing demand, Tesla must increase production, so the company has initiated recruitment for many new positions.
So far, Giga Shanghai has increased its production capacity to 250,000-260,000 units per year, which is confirmed by the latest delivery figures. In November, Tesla registered 21,604 vehicles in China, which became a new record. The company added a third shift for Model 3 production, and many workers are already involved in the Model Y test production. To further increase production capacity, Giga Shanghai is expanding its hiring.
Tesla China today announced the National Recruitment Fair. The fair will take place in four cities in China from December 26, 2020, to January 23, 2021. And in the future, the company will expand the number of cities in which it will host recruitment fairs.
Tesla has opened recruitment for a number of positions to all workshops, indicating that the plant is preparing for a new expansion in production capacity. According to several industry insiders, Giga Shanghai plans to produce about 550,000 EVs in 2021, including 300,000 Model 3s and 250,000 Model Ys, so a significant increase in the number of employees is a necessary step.
The job fair will take the form of an invitation-only meeting. In order to receive an invitation, applicants will need to scan a QR-code and enter their personal details for registration. After the data has been processed, Tesla will notify job-seekers of the time and place of the fair by email/SMS.
