Tesla Possesses Highest Revenue Per Employee In Auto Industry

November 11th, 2014 by  


Tesla Motors was recently found to have the highest revenue per employee in the whole of the automobile manufacturers industry — more or less blowing everyone else out of the water — according to recent reports.

The EV manufacturer came in with a revenue per employee (RPE) of $2.7 million. The two next-highest manufacturers? Ford Motors with an RPE of $881,000, and General Motors with an RPE of $753,000.

After those three, the rate drops off quite a bit further — with Thor Industries at $507,000, and Winnebago Industries at $468,000.

So, not much competition in other words — Tesla owns this marker of productivity.
