California Governor Gavin Newson (Gavin Newsom) said on Tuesday he was not worried about Tesla CEO Elon Musk (Elon Musk) moving the company's business out of California."I'm not worried about musk leaving soon," he told CNBC. I have had many exchanges with him. We are committed to success and innovation, as well as a low-carbon, green growth economy. That's what he's been advocating for the past few years, and that's what California is driving. "
Earlier this month, Musk said in a Twitter that he was prepared to move Tesla's headquarters and future operations out of California due to a dispute with public health officials in Alamida County. At present, most of Tesla's cars sold in the United States and Europe are produced in Alamida County.
Tesla also filed a lawsuit against alamida county for epidemic control measures. since march, these measures have restricted tesla production. At Musk's request, Tesla is restarting production. Tesla's factory in fremont has been producing new cars since mother's day weekend and has been operating for a few days despite local public health requirements.
Tesla's internal information shows that, in addition to some temporary workers and administrative staff, production shifts have been fully restored. The former can still work remotely without entering the factory.
Newson said this time that he has known musk for decades, and he has great respect and admiration for his innovative spirit. He believes that as Tesla develops into a leading global electric vehicle manufacturer, California has always been a key partner of Tesla.
"I think it's in everyone's interest to continue to find common ground, and that's what we're doing in California with Tesla," he said. They are reopening. Over the past few weeks, production, logistics and warehousing facilities across California have been reopened. "
At present, Tesla is selecting the site for the new assembly plant. Tesla is focusing on Texas and Oklahoma, according to previous media reports. Musk said the next factory would be a super factory to produce "Cybertruck".
Tesla has yet to respond to newson's comments.
Adam Jonas (Adam Jonas), an auto analyst at Morgan Stanley, said last week that he the proportion of Tesla cars produced in California would fall in the next few years. Making cars in california is "challenging" in terms of economic costs.
"There is no doubt that over time Fremont's share of global production will decline," he said. We think the next plant will be built in Texas. " He was one of the first Wall Street analysts to be bullish on Tesla.
Mr. newson says he believes it's good for companies including tesla to operate in california. "We may not be the least expensive place to run, but we are still the most suitable place ," he said.
