Tulsa, Oklahoma, is scrambling to build a new factory for Tesla's cybertruck electric pickup truck.Apart from olive branches such as tax cuts, the iconic statue of a Golden Driller drilling worker has been given a new look —— painted a face like Elon Musk (Elon Musk), with a large red T on his chest Logo、 and a belt buckle with a plain print.
At present, Tulsa is competing with "finalists" such as Austin, Texas for Tesla super factory in the central United States, AP reported.
But one local resident quipped that the fossil fuel era monument was trapped in the new clothes of the electric car manufacturer.
CNET / road show, a foreign media, tried to contact the mayor's office, but declined to comment on the matter, saying euphemistically, "Tesla and Tulsa are forged under the same spirit.".
The mayor expressed admiration for entrepreneurs like musk. As Tesla continues to rapidly change the way of transportation around the world, it is hard for him to imagine that there are other places more suitable for this important work than Tulsa.
