A German media outlet has reported that Tesla is considering locations in Lower Saxony as potential sites for Gigafactory 4.
Nordwest Zeitung quotes German minister of economics Bernd Althusmann showing enthusiasm for the project and confirming that the ministry had presented “potential locations” to Tesla executives.
“I would be delighted about the company’s commitment and the new jobs it will create in our country,” Althusmann told the outlet.
Tesla is reportedly considering sites in Emden and Emsland.
During the second-quarter earnings call, Chief Executive Elon Musk said the location of the company’s first European Gigafactory will be announced by the end of the year.
