Electric vehicle company Tesla is significantly expanding its presence in Malaysia with over a dozen new job openings in Cyberjaya and Kuala Lumpur. The newly posted positions span several key functions including supply chain, sales, service, finance, engineering, and operations.
The hiring spree signals Tesla’s broader growth strategy for Southeast Asia as demand for electric vehicles continues to accelerate in the region. Malaysia offers strategic advantages as a regional distribution hub given its central location, well-developed infrastructure, and proximity to major ASEAN economies.
Notable openings include Distribution Centre Analyst, Regional Sales Manager, Vehicle Technicians, IT Support roles, and mid-level leadership positions in service, supply chain, and operations. Sources say Tesla may be scouting locations to build a large regional distribution facility in or around Kuala Lumpur to assemble and distribute Model 3 and Model Y vehicles.
Tesla brands itself as a leader in electric vehicles, autonomous driving technology and clean energy generation and storage. The company has captured significant market share in the high-end EV space. Their expansion into Malaysia highlights a broader push into Asia as the region’s middle class continues to grow.
Consumer interest and EV adoption has accelerated in Malaysia thanks to increasing affordability, government incentives, and growing public awareness about sustainability. Tesla’s direct hiring and operations in Malaysia cater to this rapidly developing market. It also provides Tesla a launching point to court consumers across Southeast Asia.
Having an open position for a Regional Body Repair Business Specialist is a positive indication that the company is preparing to provide repair services in the country. This job role focusing on body repairs shows that Tesla is putting in place the necessary expertise and infrastructure to support maintenance and collision repairs for its vehicles locally.
