公司近况

今早,特斯拉的员工们收到了以下邮件:

正如我们共同经历的,去年是特斯拉历史上最具挑战性的一年。尽管如此,有赖于你们的努力,2018年也是特斯拉历史上最成功的一年:我们单单在最后一个季度交付了和2017年全年交付量一样多的电动车,并且2018全年交付量几乎是这之前从公司成立以来的交付总和。同时,Model 3也成为2018年美国最畅销豪华车。这非常了不起,甚至在不久前几乎没有人认为是可能的事情。

特斯拉 Model 3 高性能版专属赛道模式发布

相比内燃机,电动动力系统有很多优势。购置成本低、能源效率高及噪音小的同时,其响应速度也非常惊人。自 2008 年推出 Roadster 以来,特斯拉利用电机功率和扭矩的即时可用性,让车辆的直线加速更加纯粹和卓越。赛道模式专为封闭比赛场地和赛车跑道设计,特斯拉的目标很简单:使用相同的电机功率和扭矩,让车辆在赛道上的弯道表现就如向前加速一样自然。

这一年:特斯拉更安全

去年十月,我加入特斯拉,负责领导环境、健康和安全(EHS)团队。我很享受特斯拉所给予的权利支持,不仅有机会定期和Elon沟通相关工作,还将全球EHS团队扩展到250人的规模,仅在Fremont工厂就增加了35人,在这一年的时间里,我深刻地认识到员工的健康和福祉对特斯拉而言是多么的重要。作为美国加州最大的制造商,在其它美国汽车制造商一直在外包技术和安全标准相关工作的情况下,特斯拉正在美国创造并保留更多就业机会,这也使得我们能够直接控制质量和安全。我们的工伤事故率在2018年呈持续下降趋势。

Now, not only has Model 3 achieved a perfect 5-star safety rating in every category and sub-category, but NHTSA's tests also show that it has the lowest probability of injury of all cars the safety agency has ever tested.

Company Update

The following email was just sent to Tesla employees:

First, I'd like to thank you for your incredible efforts and contribution as we enter the final few weeks of this quarter. This is a very exciting time for Tesla, to say the least, and you are the reason for the tremendous progress we've made in a relatively short period of time. It is easy to forget that our company was almost unknown 10 years ago and didn’t even exist until after the start of the 21st century!
