All the signs are pointing to Tesla officially launching in Thailand soon. The latest indication is a series of job postings for multiple positions based in country’s capital city of Bangkok.
According to Tesla’s Careers page, there are currently 16 job postings based in Bangkok. Tesla is seeking candidates for positions in a more corporate setting like a Consumer Engagement Manager and Senior Recruiter, indicating plans for Tesla to set up more than just retail locations in Thailand.
