Elon Musk discusses possible Tesla move with Texas governor

May 14, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

As you know, last Saturday, Tesla sued the authorities in Alameda County in California, where the Tesla factory that manufactures electric cars is located. In addition, Tesla CEO Elon Musk threatened to relocate the company’s headquarters to another state – Texas or Nevada – and implement future company projects in a new location.

To date, an agreement has been reached with the district leadership and Tesla, subject to certain conditions, will be able to resume operation of the enterprise as early as next Monday. However, words about a possible move were not an empty threat. Texas Governor Greg Abbott confirmed that he was discussing this topic with Musk the other day.

During an interview with the CBS affiliate, Abbott said he thought Texas was perfect for Tesla.

“I had the opportunity to speak with Elon Musk, and he is sincerely interested in Texas and sincerely disappointed with California,” Abbott said. “We just have to wait and see how things turn out.”

Abbott did not go into the details of the conversation. Tesla has not yet responded to a Reuters request for comment.
