Tesla asks for employee help with “very high volume” end of quarter push

Tesla is once again asking for help from their employees to get as many vehicles into the hands of new customers as possible as the third quarter of 2022 comes to a close. This is despite CEO Elon Musk previously saying he was hoping to end these end of quarter waves.

According to an internal email, Tesla is expecting a “very high volume” in the final few days of September. As a result, the company is asking for help, even from those employees not working is sales or delivery.

We will be delivering a very high volume of vehicles to eagerly waiting customers during the final days of Q3. To help ensure we can delight as many customers as possible, the delivery team is requesting additional support with key delivery-execution tasks,” said the email. (via Electrek)

Some of those tasks include washing and preparing vehicles, moving vehicles, delivery to customers, and also responding to questions from new owners.

This is of course not the first time Tesla has requested help from employees in the final days and weeks of a quarter. Even high-level executives have taken part and delivered new cars to lucky customers.

However it continues a trend that CEO Elon Musk has said he was hoping to end. In November last year Musk said employees should focus on being “efficient” and minimizing the cost of deliveries.

Musk said that the massive push at the end of quarter resulted in a wave of new deliveries, but also translated into an equally big drop in the first few weeks of the next quarter. By instead focusing on efficiency, the same number of cars would be delivered over a six month period, but with fewer costs involved.
