Tesla Inc.

followed a disappointing deliveries report by cutting another swath of sales staff across the country, as the electric-car maker continues to pare back personnel and shift its ordering process online.

The company dismissed several dozen sales team members on Thursday in Chicago Brooklyn and Tampa, according to people familiar with the matter, who asked not to be named because the details were private. Tesla confirmed the cuts but declined to discuss specifics including the number of personnel affected.

The latest round of staff reductions are part of the retail retrenchment Tesla announced in February. CEO Elon Musk has said the decision to close some showrooms and embrace an online-only ordering model is designed to save money as the company ramps up production of cheaper Model 3 sedans and prepares to launch new models including the Model Y crossover next year.
