This comes after reports emerged that Tesla had shelved plans to build a low-priced Model 2 estimated to cost about $25,000.

Instead, the company decided to concentrate on developing a new robotaxi.

Recall that in internal emails, Tesla CEO Elon Musk emphasized the necessity for regular restructuring and outlined stringent measures to improve operations.

Musk claimed a drop in quarterly car deliveries as justification for wanting to reduce the workforce by at least 20%.
