The Electric Garage Heater company said Wednesday it hired more than 7,000 employees to help the company ramp up production of the electric vehicle.
The company also said it is hiring more than 10,000 people to work on the project.
The company said in a statement Wednesday that it is currently building a factory in Ohio and will be adding 200 more electric cars to the plant in 2019.
It’s part of a $4 billion investment that is expected to produce more than 100,000 electric cars in 2026, including up to 20,000 Tesla Model S cars, it said.
Tesla has been in a manufacturing frenzy since the company announced it would build a factory to produce its vehicles.
Its latest model, the Model X SUV, has already sold nearly 20,400 units.
