Elon Musk's visions are still continuing even though he just released the new self-driving car of Tesla and now has tapped the Volkswagen executive, Peter Hochholdinger. The Tesla Motors' move is to make him work the impossible tasks as vice president of vehicle production.

According to Reuters, last Friday, Tesla Motors Inc announced their plans to bring Hochholdinger in the company to work on the improvement and production of Tesla's luxury cars. Tesla is looking to make him utilize knowledge on Model S sedan and Model X sport utility vehicle's overall management while getting a cost-effective manufacturing program. The huge scale of the responsibilities make Tesla as one of the most aspiring car companies since they've revealed their attempts to increase their sales by five times.

Business Insider reported that Tesla Motors Inc is visioning a 500,000 per year release of cars which is deemed as an impossible feat by many. Chief Executive Elon Musk announced that the company is taking their things to hasty methods as he increased the pressure that suppliers are getting. The company has changed their pace to keep up with the aggressive time frame they've set. Also, design of Model 3 is still incomplete in which it is scheduled to be released in 2017.

The Jamestown Sun published that Musk has released a call for help indicating that the pressure is through the roof. He's looking for the most talented engineers available to work on Tesla and the goals they are trying to finish. The announcement came after the Tesla's vice president of manufacturing and production has departed ways with the company.

After spending atleast two decades in Audi, a subsidy of Volkwagen and their flagship brand, Peter Hochholdinger will be joining Elon Musk to develop the future electric and self- driving cars. Other than being executive for Audi, Hochholdinger's role to Audi extended to be an adviser in their production facility in Mexico.
