Tesla is threatening to remove their headquarters out of California and filing a lawsuit against Alameda county. This is following Alameda county’s unwillingness to let Tesla factory reopen partially amidst lockdown rules.
Following this dispute Elon says it will move it’s future projects to other states where lockdown procedures are not as stringent, "Frankly, this is the final straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately," Musk tweeted.
Tesla had planned on allowing a fraction of its workers back into the factories on Friday. However, Alameda county explained in a livestream that they would be violating the county’s rules.
Many are opposed to the idea of Elon Musk bringing Tesla out of California as it is the last automaker in the state. However, some are in favor of Elon leaving such as congresswoman Lorena Gonzales. Following this event, she tweeted, “F*ck Elon musk”. This tweet was met with immense backlash from diehard Elon Musk fans and Tesla fans alike.
