In March 2023, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that Tesla would open a plant in northern Nuevo León. Musk did not talk about the investment, but Mexican officials said the company could invest up to $5 billion.

However, now the governor of the state, Samuel Garcia, has announced that three times more money will be invested in the plant.

He adds that this “huge amount” will require more funds from the state for road construction and other public works.

So far, the press service of Tesla and other officials of the state of Nuevo León have not commented on the governor’s message.

Construction of the plant is likely to begin in 2025.

Recall that Tesla is recalling 1.1 million electric vehicles from China due to brake failure. We are talking about more than 1.1 million. cars produced at a plant in Shanghai or imported into China from the beginning of 2019 to April 2023.
