Elon Musk warns Tesla workers that employee committed 'sabotage'

In an email sent to employees, the CEO revealed that they have learned of a disgruntled employee who sabotaged operations and leaked confidential data. (TSLA) gears up to produce 5,000 Model 3 cars a week by the end of June, its founder and CEO, Elon Musk, is on a mission to prove the skeptics wrong.

Sunday's memo was followed Monday morning by Musk alerting staff to a fire a day earlier in what he referred to as the "body-in-white production line".

A company spokeswoman did not respond to requests for comment.

Reuters could not independently confirm any of the claims in the email. He said Tesla will continue its investigation this week to determine if the employee was acting alone or "if he was working with any outside organizations".

"As you know, there are a long list of organizations that want Tesla to die", he wrote.

In a Monday email, Musk invoked a late tech titan in urging workers to keep an eye out for any amusing business after a fire briefly halted vehicle output. The smoldering was extinguished in a matter of seconds.

Last week, Tesla announced it was cutting more than 3,000 employees - about 9 percent of its workforce - in an effort to become profitable.

Musk said in the email that while the fire could have been a random event, "Please be on the alert for anything that's not in the best interests of our company". Production has resumed and there were no injuries or significant equipment damage, she added.

Although Musk said the reorganisation does not impact production associates and is not expected to delay manufacturing targets, thousands of employees lost their jobs.

It looks like Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk may need to add some extra security to go along with the carmarker's efforts to ramp up production of its new Model 3 vehicle. However, Tesla's stock price has rallied almost 17 percent since the company's June annual shareholder meeting where Musk promised profitability in the third quarter.
