Becoming the Safest Car Factory in the World

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:



Hotbed of Misinformation

Tesla is absolutely against any form of discrimination, harassment, or unfair treatment of any kind. When we hear complaints, we take them very seriously, investigate thoroughly and, if proven to be true, take immediate action.



Supercharging Cities

It is extremely important for our customers to be able to easily charge their cars. The most convenient way to charge is to plug in overnight at home, and for most people, this is all that is needed. However, for customers who use their car for long distance travel, there is a growing network of Superchargers located along highways on popular driving routes. We have also installed thousands of Destination Charging connectors at hotels, resorts and restaurants that replicate the home charging experience when you’re away from home. Now, as part of our commitment to make Tesla ownership easy for everyone, including those without immediate access to home or workplace charging, we are expanding our Supercharger network into city centers, starting with downtown Chicago and Boston.



Tesla Welcomes Linda Johnson Rice and James Murdoch as New Independent Directors to its Board

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.


Tesla Powerpack to Enable Large Scale Sustainable Energy to South Australia

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.



Tesla Model X成為首款於所有撞擊測試類別中,全獲最高5星評級的SUV車款

我們將Model X打造成了有史以來最安全的SUV——今天,美國國家公路交通安全管理局(NHTSA)宣布,根據其獨立測試結果授予Model X全5星評級,該車為第一款在全部測試類別以及子類別中均獲5星評級的SUV車型。此外,NHTSA測試數據顯示,Model X駕乘人員受傷機率不僅是歷來接受測試SUV車型中最低的,而且在NHTSA測試過的所有車輛中,得分也僅次於Model S。



Tesla Welcomes Gaby Toledano

Gaby joins Tesla after 10 years on the Executive Team at Electronic Arts (EA), during a time of transformation and growth. Prior to EA, Gaby led Human Resources at Siebel Systems.

Creating the Safest Car Factory in the World

Earlier this year, the United Automobile Workers (UAW) announced it was attempting to organize workers in Tesla’s Fremont factory. The latest phase of their campaign involves a concerted and professional media push intended to raise questions about safety at Tesla.



如今,現代化的公共事業公司以及電網運營商都使用前所未有的規模在使用電池技術。利用能源儲存潛能的下一步是將成千上萬個電池放在一起,形成能源網絡,讓公共事業公司利用該網絡為電力系統實現直接價值。現在,Tesla可以將Powerwall動力組電池獨立組合,讓電網更乾淨、高效。這種做法又叫做“集合”。不僅如此,在用電高峰期間,擁有家用備用能源 的Powerwall客戶,如果允許Tesla以及公共事業公司使用其電池,還可以獲得補貼。


太陽能屋頂 Solar Roof

Tesla 的使命是透過打造令人驚艷、無可比擬的產品,以促進全球向永續能源的轉型。發展太陽能電力系統一直是 Tesla 綱要計畫的一部分;我們意識到,價格實惠、經久耐用、外形美觀又能與電池儲存裝備整合的屋頂將符合未來需求。
