Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors, has said that TESL employees are “not really in charge” of the electric vehicle maker’s operations.
“We’re not really in control of any part of TESLELA, so it’s hard for us to say what’s the best thing for Tesla,” he told CNBC in an interview last week.
Tesla has said it will be hiring at least 2,000 new employees this year.
In December, Tesla’s board voted to allow the company to scale back on the number of employees it will employ.
Musk said that the company was working on the issue and that the board would soon discuss the issue with its employees.
“If we do decide to change our hiring, we will do it on a case-by-case basis,” Musk said in a December interview with CNBC.
Musk’s comments came in response to questions about whether Tesla would scale back its workforce.
“Yes, we’re working on it,” Musk told CNBC.
“You have to keep the best people in there, and you have to have a good business model.
Musk said Tesla had an internal team of 20,000 employees and was looking to add another 5,000 to 7,000 in the coming years. “
That’s what it takes to grow a company, and I can tell you we’re not going to have too many people left on the planet, if they’re there at all.”

“Our employees are super talented.
They’re incredibly hard-working people, and we need that talent,” Musk added.
