There were some pretty massive layoffs with the merger already, leading into it, at least according to someone I know who was part of those lay offs.



And according to this article:

> After the acquisition of SolarCity, Tesla had another round of layoffs to restructure and remove duplicate positions from the acquisition, which resulted in about 20% of SolarCity’s workforce being let go.


Other than the article I can't find anything that points to redundancy being the cause:

Is the only other reference that I have found and articles around this time frame don't make it clear the redundancy was the cause.
