Tesla China boss, Tom Zhu, apparently has a very big roll in preparing Giga Texas Cybertruck for production. He has worked with a team from Shanghai on Cybertruck production at Giga Texas and is reportedly in line for a promotion at Tesla.
Zhu’s involvement at Tesla Giga Texas and the Fremont Factory has led to speculation among his Tesla colleagues that he may be in line for a higher-level position. In August 2022, the Tesla China boss and the Shanghai team were brought in to address production issues in the United States.
According to Reuters, Zhu reportedly brought an engineering team from China to help him with Giga Texas and the Fremont Factory. A source familiar with Giga Texas operations said that the Shanghai team was spotted working in an area reserved for Cybertruck and battery development.
