However, in light of this news, Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, promptly denied these reports in a tweet, effectively labeling them as false.
Though Reuters and the Wall Street Journal had published these assertions, Elon Musk’s response introduces skepticism and advises caution when considering the accuracy of such claims. Tesla has previously stated that by the conclusion of 2023, a decision will likely be made about the location of a new factory.
The company currently operates six factories, with a seventh being constructed in northern Nuevo Leon state, Mexico. Their aim is to amplify their sales to 20 million vehicles annually by 2030 from around 1.3 million in 2022.
