QOTD: What Impact Will The Tesla Layoffs Have on EV Charging?


qotd what impact will the tesla layoffs have on ev charging

Yesterday, Tesla laid off the entire team responsible for working on its Supercharger stations. Considering that so many other automakers are in the process of switching to the Tesla charging standard, how is this going to affect the EV charging landscape?

We might already be seeing an answer, at least if this story is indicative of what’s to come.

Or maybe not. It’s a bit early to tell, since the layoffs happened just yesterday.

Still, I am curious what’s going to happen here. With the growth of Supercharger stations slowing but the EV market growing, how will this impact charging in general?

At least the existing Superchargers aren’t going anywhere — Tesla said that the move is being made in part to focus on maintaining the stations already in use.

What say you?

Sound off below.
