Great to read this from Bloomberg Business:

As quietly as one of its electric cars, Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) has become the biggest auto-industry employer in California.

Tesla now employs more than 6,000 people in the state, the automaker said, offering the first public snapshot of its workforce this year. That moves the fast-growing company well ahead of Toyota Motor Corp. (7203), the world’s biggest automaker, which has 5,300 direct employees in California -- a count set to fall after the Japan-based company said it will move a majority of those jobs to Texas by 2017.

Tesla will add at least 500 more workers by year’s end in California, Simon Sproule, a spokesman, said in an interview.

The RAV4 was, indeed, a compliance car, but recognize that Toyota make the Prius and now also the Prius Plug-in with a 4.4kWh battery (so, maybe 15-mile electric-only range).
