Tesla Hires at New York Gigafactory for Autopilot and FSD Beta

Written by Steven Loveday, Inside EVs


...already hired more than 250 people to work on data labeling related to Autopilot and Full Self-Driving Beta. The publication contained a letter to New York penned by Tesla Treasurer Yaron Klein. It reads:


"Despite these headwinds, Tesla has been steadily ramping back up GFNY and expanding and diversifying the facility’s operations. Tesla has continued to expand the portfolio of the Power Electronics and vehicle charging equipment manufactured in Buffalo, and we recently onboarded over 250 new positions at the facility to support training Tesla’s autonomous vehicle and full self-driving capabilities."


The article also claims Tesla will be working on power electronics production at the factory. Reportedly, Tesla has already met its investment requirement for New York, but it needs to ramp up hiring by about 30%.


The state is giving Tesla until the end of the year to meet the goal. The company says "it will continue to recover from the pandemic-related impacts and expects it will meet and exceed all of the Agreement’s Year Two requirements by the end of the 2021."
