Blog Tesla Moving Headquarters to Austin, Texas



Tesla is moving its headquarters to Austin, Texas.

Chief Executive Elon Musk announced the move during the company’s annual shareholder meeting. The CEO has relocated to the state and Tesla is currently building a factory near Austin. Tesla’s current HQ is in Palo Alto, Calif.

Last year, Musk disagreed with officials in California over certain coronavirus restrictions that temporarily shut down Tesla’s factory. He signaled at that time that the company may move to Texas. Tesla also released two press releases recently with a dateline of Austin rather than Palo Alto.

Construction at Giga Texas began in July 2020. Production of the Model Y at the factory is expected to begin by the end of the year and ramp up in 2022. The factory will also produce the Cybertruck, which Musk said will not be available until the end of next year. Volume production for Cybertruck will not kick in until 2023.

Musk said Tesla will explore a new factory next year and possibly make a decision in 2023.

First...Yea, Texas was definitely not prepared for the "once in a 100 years" freeze.

I wonder how the other states are investing to cover every contingency that might possibly occur in their "once in 100 years" plan?
Personally, I heat my home with a wood stove and seldom ever use the Heat Pump even though I could but prefer not and I let the flames keep me entertained and put me to sleep watching them. House is ICF so heating is not critical anyway. I have a buried 500-gallon propane tank and generator to provide ALL my electrical needs for weeks, I live in the hurricane belt so it's just a way of life down here.

What is the mailing address for the current Palo Alto Tesla Headquarters?
