Tesla has reduced potential sites for its third Gigafactory in the United States, according to Autoblog. The automaker would have chosen Austin, Texas and Tulsa, Oklahoma as finalists for a new assembly plant – probably the largest to date – dedicated to the construction of the Cybertruck, its next pickup truck and the Y model.
Company chief Elon Musk recently threatened to move Tesla’s headquarters to Nevada or Texas because of the Alameda County decision to shut down its factory in Fremont until May. Tesla announced its search for a third factory in March before Musk became a voice critic for coronavirus blockages. Musk has chosen to defy lock orders and restart Tesla production in Fremont, but it remains to be seen whether the company is actually moving its headquarters.
