Tesla is introducing the Cybertruck in Europe – and cutting an additional 500 jobs

Tesla will offer its Cybertruck in more than 100 locations in Europe until the beginning of July. However, a start date for European sales has not yet been set. CEO Elon Musk is said to be ramping up job cuts.

American car manufacturer Tesla has begun a demo tour for its Cybertruck in Europe. As part of “Cyber ​​Odyssey”, the model will be introduced across Europe in 20 countries with a total of more than 100 locations from this week until the beginning of July.

Then (29.5.-1.6.) it was Salzburg's turn.

The Cybertruck is produced at the Tesla Gigafactory in Austin, Texas. The model has been delivered to customers since the end of 2023 – with a two-year delay due to production problems and battery shortages. Those interested in Europe will have to continue to be patient. It is still uncertain when the Cybertruck will be available here. Tesla again did not provide any information about the possible start of sales in Europe.

Recently, the Cybertruck has generated a lot of buzz with negative headlines. Tesla recalled nearly 4,000 models in mid-April due to throttle problems. The NHTSA warns that this could come loose and get stuck in the interior panels. This may cause the car to accelerate unintentionally.

Tesla is cutting more jobs

According to the report, it was also stated that everyone who worked for Tinucci and Ho would be terminated. In total, this affects about 500 people. “We hope these measures make it clear that we have to be quite stringent on headcount and costs,” Musk wrote. “While some senior managers take this seriously, most others do not.”

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Just a few weeks ago, Musk announced that more than ten percent of jobs would be cut. Several hundred jobs are also due to be cut at the plant in Gruenheide near Berlin. (pork/appa)
