Tesla has apparantly confirmed a reduction of more than 10 percent in its workforce, which amounts to approximately 15,000 job cuts worldwide.

This move is a part of the company's strategy to reduce costs and improve operational efficiency in response to current market conditions.

Tesla's sales and profitability have faced challenges recently, influenced by a cooled demand for electric vehicles and increased competition, leading to these workforce adjustments.

Details on the specific departments most affected by the layoffs remain undisclosed.

The company has experienced a decline in vehicle deliveries that fell short of expectations, marking its first quarterly drop in four years.

Despite attempts to sustain sales through price reductions, Tesla has not managed to reverse the downturn in sales and has seen a decrease in profit margins.

Additionally, Tesla has ceased the development of a new, more affordable vehicle model that had been anticipated as a significant addition to its product lineup.

The layoffs extend up to senior levels, including the departure of a Senior Vice President and a Vice President.

These changes indicate a significant restructuring within Tesla's executive ranks.

Looking ahead, Tesla is focusing on operational adjustments and efficiencies. The company has announced plans for future projects such as the introduction of a robotaxi, expected to be unveiled later in the year.
