We welcome constructive criticism, but those who care about journalistic integrity should strive for the truth above all. Unfortunately, the writers at Reveal have published an article that paints a completely false picture of Tesla and what it is actually like to work here. In our view, what they portray as investigative journalism is in fact an ideologically motivated attack by an extremist organization working directly with union supporters to create a calculated disinformation campaign against Tesla. The piece even includes an interview with Worksafe – the same organization that the UAW enlisted to publish a negative report against Tesla last year, and whose board includes labor union officials and advocates.
We were deeply saddened to learn that the driver of a Model X vehicle involved in an accident last Friday passed away. Safety is at the core of everything we do and every decision we make, so the loss of a life in an accident involving a Tesla vehicle is difficult for all of us. Earlier this week, Tesla proactively reached out to the authorities to offer our assistance in investigating.
When I recently joined Tesla to oversee employee health and safety, I was asked to take a fresh look at every aspect of how we protect our workforce and ensure a safe working environment. I’ve been focused on workplace safety for over 25 years, and I’ve learned that most issues can be solved by listening to employees, using common sense, being proactive, and ensuring there is a culture that values safety. Since I started, I’ve been pleased to see that much of this work is already happening, and although we are not perfect, we’re taking a number of other steps to achieve our goal of having the safest car factory in the world. Here’s what we’re focused on:
Recharger son véhicule facilement est très important pour un propriétaire de véhicule électrique. La recharge à domicile de nuit est la solution la plus pratique pour permettre à la majorité de nos clients d’effectuer leurs trajets quotidiens. Nous continuons toutefois à développer notre réseau de stations Superchargeurs le long des axes autoroutiers les plus empruntés pour faciliter les longs trajets de nos clients. Nous avons également déployé des milliers de connecteurs Recharge à destination dans des hôtels, restaurants et lieux de loisirs, leur permettant de retrouver la simplicité de la recharge à domicile en déplacement. Aujourd’hui, conformément à notre volonté de rendre l’expérience Tesla toujours plus simple pour le plus grand nombre, y compris nos clients et futurs clients ne disposant pas d’une solution de recharge à domicile ou au bureau, nous étendons le réseau Superchargeur aux centres-villes, à commencer par Chicago et Boston.
We would like to welcome Linda Johnson Rice, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Johnson Publishing Company (JPC), and James Murdoch, Chief Executive Officer of 21st Century Fox (21CF), to Tesla’s board of directors.
Last September, a 50-year storm damaged critical infrastructure in the state of South Australia, causing a state-wide blackout and leaving 1.7 million residents without electricity. Further blackouts occurred in the heat of the Australian summer in early 2017. In response, the South Australian Government as a leader in renewable energy, looked for a sustainable solution to ensure energy security for all residents, now and into the future, calling for expressions of interest to deploy grid-scale energy storage options with at least 100 megawatts (MW) of capacity.
