In early August, Tesla Shanghai super factory completed the production line upgrade, and Tesla’s electric car production speed greatly improved. With the increase in production, Tesla began to enter the passenger car market in more countries and regions.
TESLARATI reported today that in May, Twitter user @Ekapob shared a document from Tesla’s Ministry of Commerce in Thailand that mentioned David Jon Feinstein, Tesla’s senior global director for entering new markets. The company will be responsible for selling new energy vehicles such as passenger cars, pickup trucks, vans and minivans.
Recently, Tesla posted job openings in Bangkok for consultants, office administrators, senior recruiters, vehicle technicians, public policy and business development managers, and inside sales consultants. Among them, the Public Policy and Business Development Manager will be responsible for representing Tesla with Thai government officials to discuss policies and regulations affecting Tesla in Thailand. This series of hires indicate that Tesla is about to enter the Thai market.
Tesla has not yet built infrastructure such as supercharging stations in Thailand, a situation that will change as Tesla begins operating its electric vehicle business in the country.
