Tesla plans to expand manufacturing in Australia by 2018
Tesla plans on expanding manufacturing in the US, as it looks to expand its Australian manufacturing footprint.
The Palo Alto, California-based electric car maker is looking to build manufacturing facilities in Australia and South Australia, as well as adding production to a factory in Germany.
The company recently announced that it will expand its presence in the United States, expanding its manufacturing footprint from six plants to seven, and adding a new facility to South Australia.
Tesla has said it plans to open its new manufacturing facility in 2019 in Reno, Nevada.
In December, Tesla said it was expanding its workforce to over 100 in the country, bringing its total to more than 2,000 employees.
Tesla said it would continue to build its Fremont factory for its Model X crossover, which is being designed to be the company’s next-generation sedan.
Tesla currently makes the Model S sedan, which it plans on releasing later this year.
