How to isolate the returned employees? How can employees reduce close contacts while completing the work? These experiences have been written into Teslas China operation manual and are based on localization in the United States to support better resumption of production in the United States. Tao Lin said.
According to Tao Lin, Tesla has a strong Internet gene, and its test drive, sales and other links are accelerating online. In contrast, offline experience center carries more experience functions of new products and new ideas. In the next step, Teslas experience center will move to more new cities according to the expansion of customer groups in different cities.
