Tesla will build a new plant in Nevada, where the American manufacturer’s new electric vehicles will be produced.
Nevada Gov. Joe Lombardo made the announcement during his last speech before Tesla officially announced its intentions.
Lombardo said the new facility is planned to be built in northern Nevada. He also said that the cost of building the plant would be about $3.5 billion.
The plant will reportedly be the production site for Tesla Semi trucks, the first batch of which was delivered to Pepsi last month.
