Increasing the usage of electric vehicles has been recommended as a possible method to decrease fuel consumption in a bid to mitigate the causes of climate change. While a lot of car manufacturers are investing in electric cars lately, Tesla has been the brand closely associated with EVs for a long time now.
Gigafactory in Germany?
In the latest development, Tesla is reportedly looking at northwest Germany ( North Rhine-Westphalia) for a new European factory. The news regarding the European factory was reported by Rheinische Post, a local German newspaper.
Furthermore, the report suggests that the first inspections of a possible location have already taken place as well.
It’s worth mentioning that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said “Germany is a leading choice for Europe. Perhaps on the German-French border makes sense, near the Benelux countries.”
