    Go Tesla go! This is so great for Bay Area employment. As I understand it, as soon as the Gigafactory is up and running, Tesla will have the most American-made cars in America. I am not sure where Tesla exactly fits in now, but most sites currently say either the Camry or F150 have the most American-made parts.

    The cool thing is that the new BART extension will end right at the factory's doorstep. They envision their employees to get there via mass transit.

    Mass transit will help a lot in terms of emissions.

    This factory should be helping to reduce traffic congestion in Fremont and in the SF Bay Area before too long. Tesla minibus unveil should be ready in 2017 according to Elon in MP Part Deux. I assume the Bay Area will get quite a few of the early production models.
