Tesla to decide between Austin and Tulsa for next U.S. factory
Tesla is deciding between Austin, Texas, and Tulsa, Oklahoma as the locations for its next U.S. factory, multiple outlets reported in recent days.
Why it matters: The reports, while hedged, add some clarity to the question of where Tesla will build Model Y crossovers for East Coast delivery, as well as the Cybertruck.
- Tesla did not provide comment on the reports. And keep this in mind: "It wasn’t clear if there were any other finalists in the mix," AP notes.
Flashback: In March a source familiar with the electric automaker's planning told Axios and other outlets that Nashville, Tenn., was under serious consideration.
- But on Friday TechCrunch, citing an anonymous source, reported that Tesla has informed officials the city is out of the running.
