Elon Musk Wants To Build Tesla’s Plant In Europe

Elon Musk declared his readiness to build the first Tesla’s plant in Europe. To date, there is the only Tesla’s assembly plant in Fremont (California). The factory to produce batteries for EVs is located in Reno (Nevada).

Negotiations have been conducted at the first stage. The US company started to negotiate with the governments of Germany and the Netherlands for the construction of the first plant in Europe.

It is about the European Gigafactory to produce batteries and assemble electric vehicles. Tesla’s CEO claims the plant may appear on the border with one of the Benelux countries.

Tesla already has a research center in Prüm (border of Germany with Belgium and Luxembourg).

Earlier the American car maker signed an agreement in Shanghai on the construction of an assembly plant in China with a capacity of 500,000 cars.

Tesla wants to avoid consequences of the US trade war with the PRC and the EU. Production sites outside the USA should help this purpose.

  1. Despite Elon Musk’s optimistic early views on turning electric technology into a fossil fuel alternative for the everyman, Teslas remain the vegan diet of the transportation world: healthier, yes, and a great way of communicating your superiority to your fellow man, but just too expensive for most people to realistically go for. Electric automaker Tesla is preparing to have some employees return to work next week at its assembly plant in Fremont, California, Bloomberg News reported Saturday. Fremont, located in the San Francisco Bay area, has been under stay-at-home orders since March 16 amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
