Tesla CEO Elon Musk Reassures Despite Layoffs in Supercharger Team

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, recently took to social media to address concerns stemming from reports of layoffs within the company, particularly affecting the team behind Tesla’s Supercharging network. In a post on X, Elon Musk affirmed that Tesla remains committed to expanding the Supercharger network, albeit at a slower pace for new locations. He underscored the company’s focus on ensuring 100% uptime and enhancing existing locations.

Despite Elon Musk’s reassurances, signs of retrenchment are evident as Tesla reportedly pulls out of leases for upcoming stations in New York. Currently, the company boasts 57,579 Superchargers across 6,249 global locations.

The announcement elicited mixed reactions, with even staunch Tesla supporters expressing disappointment. Commenters on Musk’s post criticized the decision, labeling it as “kinda lame” and urging reconsideration. Many argued that a robust charging network is vital for widespread electric vehicle adoption nationwide.

Troy Meekhof, founder of The Cybertruck Guy, a site dedicated to covering EVs like the Cybertruck, voiced strong opposition to the move. “This is a goddamn disaster,” Meekhof lamented.

As Tesla navigates through organizational changes, stakeholders remain vigilant, hoping for a strategic balance between expansion goals and service reliability in the Supercharger network.
