Porsche to hire 1400 employees for Electric Car


A number of traditional auto makers like Chevrolet, Mercedes, BMW, Nissan have been working on their own electric cars for quite some time now.
There is a boom in jobs in that sector especially after Apple also announced that it is entering the Auto sector

Porsche plans to create at least 1,400 jobs to develop, build and sell the battery-powered Mission E, a rival to Tesla’s Model S, that is due to roll off the assembly line at its Zuffenhausen base in 2019.

Another 350 digital experts are to be hired at a Porsche unit specifically set up to develop mobility concepts and uncover new business areas, it said, reflecting a transformation also underway at VW’s luxury brand Audi.

Porsche will boost the number of jobs for its first all-electric model by more than half from previous targets as part of parent Volkswagen’s (VW) push to overcome its emissions scandal by embracing zero-emission cars and digital services.

The sports-car brand is spending about 1 billion euros ($1.1 billion) on the zero-emission model.

The Mission E implies a sea change at Porsche, traditionally known for high-performance combustion-powered sports cars, Porsche labour boss Uwe Hueck told reporters at a briefing on Tuesday. “You either take part in the digital change or you lose.”

Porsche said the 1,400 jobs include 900 production staff, 300 salaried workers and 200 engineers. It also plans to boost the number of apprenticeships by half to 220, part of an industry-wide recruitment push as automakers compete with the likes of Google and Apple for digital car technology.

Clearly in times to come Electric Car Industry will be a large job creator.
