Tesla wants to accelerate the emergence of Semi trucks and is looking for specialists

The fact that the manufacturer of electric cars Tesla is going to intensify work on this project, say fresh vacancies. The brand started talking about Semi back in 2017, but over the past years, it has not made significant progress.

New specialists will help to correct the situation: Tesla has opened three vacancies at its plant in Nevada, which was entrusted with the production of electric trucks. The brand is looking for process engineers. They will be tasked with bringing to mind all production methods for the Semi project: from optimizing the operation of the conveyor to testing and quality control.

The company also requires a quality engineer to work at the Gigafactory 1. He will monitor the quality of the auto components required for the production of Semi.

The Tesla Semi electric truck brand was announced in 2017, promising to organize the first deliveries in two years. The cheapest option was estimated at 150 thousand dollars. Such a truck can travel 480 kilometers without recharging. For a more long-range version (800 km) they asked for $ 30,000 more. The company did not experience a shortage of orders for the future electric truck. However, the plans were confused by a delay in production.

Last summer, Tesla employees received an email from Elon Musk urging them to do everything possible to get the Semi into production as soon as possible.

In the brand’s report for the third quarter of 2020, the Semi project was mentioned in passing: the electric car is being developed, and the campaign is looking for a suitable production site.

In the meantime, it became known that the number of registered Tesla cars in California has grown very seriously compared to 2019. The main catalyst for this dynamic was the success of the new Model Y crossover.
