After increasing its employment efforts in the country, Tesla Motors, Inc. is planning to roll out its products in Thailand as soon as this month.
The automobile manufacturer, which is owned by the billionaire Elon Musk, is up against severe competition from Chinese players already present in the market for electric vehicles (EVs), such as Great Wall Motors and Hozon Auto, each of which has developed an electric vehicle (EV) in the subcompact and sports utility vehicle (SUV) segments, respectively.
Since September of this year, Tesla has had a total of twenty vacant roles headquartered in Bangkok. These opportunities include a home-charging developer, charging infrastructure lead, technicians, and customer support representatives.
The company’s drive into Thailand comes after it was forced to suspend plans for development into India owing to tariff conflicts and efforts to cut its personnel by 10% due to fears about an impending recession.
