Tesla plans to set up a factory in Texas, USA, to produce its electric pickup trucks?

According to foreign media reports, a public document shows that electric car manufacturer Tesla may build its Cybertruck electric pickup plant in Austin, Texas.

The documents show that Tesla has submitted an application to the Austin School District where Travis County is located, seeking tax relief. Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced in March this year that Tesla has begun to look for new factory sites, mainly for the production of Model Y delivered to customers on the East Coast of the United States, as well as those that were still there at the time. Cybertruck electric pickup truck under development.

“Tesla is evaluating the possibility of developing, designing and constructing an electric vehicle manufacturing plant in Travis County,” the company said in a document. The site currently being considered by Tesla is a ready-made concrete facility owned by Martin Marietta Material Company, covering an area of ​​850 hectares.

The company stated in a document submitted to the Office of the Auditor General of Texas: “Tesla is evaluating the possibility of developing, designing and constructing an electric vehicle manufacturing plant in Travis County (located in central Texas, USA). “

This document strongly indicates that Tesla will use Texas as its next electric vehicle production base. It is reported that the company plans to build a factory covering an area of ​​4 to 5 million square feet (about 370,000 to 460,000 square meters), which will employ 5,000 workers.

It is understood that Tesla once acquired 2,100 acres of land 12 miles away in Austin, and this may become the location of its upcoming Cybertruck factory. But Musk said the company has not yet begun to purchase land in Texas. The new plant is scheduled to start in the third quarter of this year, but so far the company has not obtained all the required approvals.

Tesla said that initially eight states were listed as candidates for the company’s plant construction, and the company also received incentives from each state, but did not disclose specific details.

Since then, the company has narrowed its search and said that whether it can obtain tax relief will have a major impact on its location decision. The company said: “This is particularly important in Texas because the state’s real estate and personal property taxes are relatively high compared to other states.”

In March of this year, Tesla Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Elon Musk (Elon Musk) announced that the company will select a site in the central United States to build a new super factory. In addition to producing its Cybertruck electric pickup truck, the plant will also produce Model Y crossovers for customers on the East Coast.

The new factory that Tesla will build has triggered competition in many cities and states across the United States, and they all hope that Tesla can build a factory locally. This move is reminiscent of Tesla’s announcement in 2014 that it plans to build a large battery factory. In the end, it chose Nevada because the state provided Tesla with a $1.3 billion reward.

Tesla released its Cybertruck electric pickup truck in November last year. The company has stated that the most powerful Cybertruck will be put into production at the end of 2021. By 2022, the company will start producing cheaper versions.
