What if they instead moved all the painted cars to Texas, where they wouldn't be hobbled by California paint restrictions (I assume?), and then make the CT in Fremont?

I think Elon is lava mad right now and wants to pull out of CA altogether. The assembly line employees are non-union so it would be feasible. Tesla just updated the paint shop at Fremont so I don’t see Cybertruck assembly happening in CA.

Welcome to Texas, Tesla. You may not have been born here.. but you got here as fast as you could.

If they want to have a vehicle with the smallest carbon footprint, it should be built somewhere where the energy mix is predominantly renewable. In British Columbia, 94% of our electricity comes from hydro power.
I like your logic here 🤠

Hmmm, Elon has put his houses in So. Cal. up for sale. I wonder how much of a tax benefit it would be to reside in Texas as opposed to California.

Texas has far lower property and income taxes than the People's Republic of California. This is one of the reasons why the 2020 census will show people moving from CA, NY, NJ, IL to TX.

CA is business hostile TX is business friendly. Investing in CA now is very cost ineffective.
