Tesla's Shanghai factory is hiring, Model Y domestic test car exposed, Model Y is coming?

Recently, Tesla’s Shanghai Gigafactory released job postings, recruiting technical staff and operators for its new projects and car models, with a total demand of nearly a thousand people.

A search on the “Tesla Recruitment” official WeChat account shows that this recruitment mainly includes operating positions and team leaders/technicians, with 9 departments involved, including die-casting workshops, stamping workshops, automobile workshops, final assembly workshops, logistics departments, and booster stations. Meanwhile, 11 departments such as die-casting workshops are also recruiting team leaders and technicians.

In the job preface, Tesla only mentions new projects and new car models, without specifying what these new car models are. However, the recruitment advertisement attached a picture of Model Y.

Coincidentally, on August 29th, Weibo user @布衣的生活笔记 captured a domestically produced Model Y test car in transit in Yancheng, Jiangsu Province. All signs indicate that Tesla is accelerating the production of Model Y in China. Can we expect to see Model Y at next month’s Beijing Auto Show?
