Businessman Elon Musk criticized California for not allowing Tesla to restore production during the coronavirus pandemic.
Musk threatens to move Tesla’s car production and all of the company’s future projects to Nevada and Texas, and close the current California plant.
The Tesla CEO also announced his intention to sue Alameda County in California because the local health department did not consider it appropriate for the automaker to resume work now.
Musk previously called the decree to close the economy “fascist” government. According to him, Tesla’s decision to leave production at Fremont metro will depend on how they are treated here.
Musk, 48, is one of the biggest proponents of business recovery during a pandemic. Many other technology businessmen criticize his position, while conservative circles desperately support him.
Tesla’s California factories employ about 20,000 people. The Fremont facility is the only one in the world to produce Tesla S, X and Y models. The company has invested billions of dollars in this facility.
Elon Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies Corp. company is located in Texas, where rockets and space equipment are manufactured.
