Tesla reportedly lays off 200 Autopilot employees in latest jobs cut

Tesla has reportedly laid off around 200 employees on its Autopilot team and closed an office in California. Corresponding , the company announced the move to employees on Tuesday. Many of the employees affected were annotation specialists tasked with evaluating and annotating Autopilot data received from customers. Along with the layoffs, Tesla closed its San Mateo location; Bloomberg reports that the remains of the 350-strong team have been moved to another nearby office.

The cuts are almost certainly part of a move by Tesla CEO Elon Musk to lower the company’s costs ahead of a potential recession. In early June, Musk told employees in a company-wide email that he had a “super bad feeling” about the economy and that layoffs were coming. Later he told Bloomberg He planned to reduce Tesla’s salaried workforce by about 10 percent over the next three months. The admission came after Musk told the remote workers to lose or lose their jobs. Tesla reportedly botched its back-to-office plan reported that many employees returned to the company’s Fremont facility to find that there was insufficient parking and desk space.
