The layoffs, initiated by Elon Musk following poor financials and a strategic shift towards autonomous driving, resulted in the dismissal of approximately 500 Supercharger team members.

This abrupt move disrupted Supercharger operations and expansion plans, leaving Tesla without essential expertise and leadership. Energy companies, including BP, expressed interest in acquiring Supercharger locations and talent to bolster their charging networks.

BP’s commitment to invest $1 billion in expanding its charging infrastructure underscores the significance of Tesla’s Supercharger network in the evolving EV market. The potential acquisition of Tesla’s Supercharger division by BP reflects the growing competition in the charging infrastructure sector and highlights the value of established networks.

Despite Tesla’s pledge to continue Supercharger expansion, speculation arises regarding the division’s future as external entities seek to capitalize on emerging opportunities.
