Tesla on the hunt for central U.S. site
In a Tweet yesterday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk made clear that the decision to produce the company’s electric pickup truck in the central part of the U.S. has been made - it’s just a matter of exactly where.
“Scouting locations for Cybertruck Gigafactory. Will be central USA,” Musk tweeted. In a second tweet, Musk said that production of Tesla’s compact sports utility offering, the Model Y, would be heading to the East Coast. Worth noting, however, is a third tweet Musk issued yesterday, suggesting that Tesla should have a “mega rave cave under the Berlin Gigafatory [sic].” Model Y was unveiled one year ago and began production in Fremont, California in January. According to a recent story at Teslarati.com, Tesla began sending delivery confirmation notices via email to customers in February, with actual owner possession beginning this month. Tesla’s futuristic-looking Cybertruck is slated to begin production in late 2021 at a price point of a little less than USD 40,000.
