Elon Musk just tweeted this revealing that Tesla is scouting locations for a Cybertruck Gigafactory and it will be located somewhere in central USA.

Could the Cybertruck Gigafactory be in Texas, as Musk previously may have hinted at in this Facebook poll.

Update: Tennessee could be a front-runner according to reports by Techcrunch.

Where do you think the factory should or will be built?

As much as I'd like it to be in Colorado; I'm thinking Kansas is pretty close to the middle. Make it so #1...

"T" is for TEXAS AND TESLA. Keeping it simple. Time to put some shovels in the ground and get'er done.

KY would be nice...not many more deserving

Maybe even eastern KY/WV,theres a labor force in coal country
Not that much labor is needed... it's mostly robots. I'm guessing they want easy access to transport lines and that rules out eastern ky and WV.... also they are eastern, not really central. Which makes Texas or WI a good choice.

Why not just build it somewhere close to the west coast since that is where most of the vehicles are sold anyway? One thing he should definitely take in to consideration is states that are offering rebates for EVs. He should reward those forward looking states since that is part of the company's mission statement.

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.

It should be in Geronimo, Texas. (Near New Braunfels, TX, between San Antonio and Austin).

Close to I35, rails, I130, and heavy talent in Austin and surrounding areas. No unions. Lots of blue collar workers and professionals. Cheap, flat land.
