Tesla to expand its Fremont factory
Tesla is trying all it can to boost the production capacity of its California plant. This move could help the facility boost vehicle production. There are specific professionals that Tesla needs to do the expansion in its Fremont plant. The company needs automation and control engineers to help ramp up production at the Fremont plant. At the moment, the Fremont plant produces a short list of cars. The plant produces Tesla Model S, Model X, and Model 3.
It is important to note that these Chinese expatriates will not be in the U.S. permanently. The company will use these 200 Chinese professionals temporarily. The employees will travel to the Fremont plant, and the mission will last at least three months. However, this is not an official report.

Nevertheless, there are reports that the first batch of Chinese employees will depart for the United States as early as this month.
At the moment, a Tesla representative declined to comment on this report. Thus, there is no official report from the company regarding this report.
