The arrangement flags the U.S. electric vehicle (EV) producer’s endeavors to make its own car batteries, EVs’ most costly parts.

Laborers relegated to the office would add up to 470, of which 400 would “work in shifts, such that there are 100 employees working at manufacturing and production operations at any given time, all day, every day.”
