This is the most recent in a number of job cuts taking place at the electric car company.

Tesla, business mogul Elon Musks’ electric car and clean energy company, laid off almost 200 employees from its Autopilot team after closing the San Mateo, California office where they all worked.  

The layoffs, which were first reported by Bloomberg, are the latest in a string of job cuts taking place in the company after Musk told Tesla executives the company needed to stop hiring and reduce headcount by 10 percent.  

At the end of last year, Tesla had almost 100,000 employees, according to Reuters, but it is unclear how many of those employees are salaried and how many are hourly workers. 

Most of the Autopilot employees laid off Wednesday were hourly workers, which came as a surprise to many since last week Musk had outlined a plan to boost hourly jobs, Bloomberg reported.
