Tesla Expands into South America

Tesla is preparing to enter the South American market, as a recent job posting in Chile indicates.

The electric car company has expanded globally since launching the Model S over a decade ago.

Tesla is looking for a country manager in Santiago, Chile, which often marks its initial entry point into new markets.

Although Chile's auto market is relatively small, there is significant interest in electric vehicles.

The country's wealth of lithium, used in EV batteries, has driven interest in electric mobility.

Chile's government also plans to allow only new electric vehicle sales in the country by 2035, prompting Tesla's entry into the region.
