Saw in the news over the weekend that Elon flew over to the UK last week to check out potential sites for a new gigafactory.

Rumours first emerged that the UK government’s Department of International Trade had recently been on the lookout for a 4 million sq ft commercial premises - and an old MOD site near Bristol was earmarked as suitable & available

Now I found this interesting, as just up the road & rail, (well 50 miles away if your counting), is the massive Tata steel plant at Llanwern in South Wales - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Llanwern_steelworks

Why the need for a European Cybertruck?

Simply - Its present design is just too darn big for our little roads & garages & Elon has previously stated that he wants each variant of car to be made near its market to save all the shipping costs

Just a thought ...
