I think San Marcos is the best place. Or Buda. Or Kyle. Draw from Austin and San Antonio. Close to F1 track or 130 tollroad. Maybe Lockhart.

Giga Buda has a ring to it.

Texas makes a lot of sense.

Additionally, while some people don't like the idea of rewarding a state that have allowed the oil industry to prosper (see tweet below), I think the opposite is true. The only way to effect real change is from the inside. By building a gigafactory in Texas, employing hundreds or thousands of Texans, and establishing a presence in Texas, Tesla can win the hearts and minds of many Texans that are still not pursuaded that electric is the way to go.

Thank you for being quick to point out Texas is one of the highest producers of wind power. We produce a ton of renewable energy.
The state is rapidly changing, many Texans are starting to see the importance of protecting our environment. And a lot more of us ALREADY see the importance.

Overnight, Elon Musk tweeted this poll asking for votes for "Giga Texas?"



So, it appears that a Giga Texas factory is being considered or already decided upon. Tesla has a good problem on its hands - with imminent Model Y deliveries and a decision yet to be made (or announced) on where it will produce the Cybertruck (which has already received enough reservations requiring years to fill).

A Giga Texas factory would certainly make sense as a new manufacturing site to handle the Cybertruck production. Texas also happens to be a crucial market for pickup truck sales, which could help the Cybertruck's sales and image among the traditional pickup fans/buyers.
Wow hoo, :p great news for folks in Alabama about the TEXAS assembly plant location. So does the logic still apply to fulfill orders closest to the assembly plant first like what we saw in Cali ? Me thinks the 20% 'ers are on the coast and not too happy. :(

Dave Ramsey will be proud. Now I have to beef up my game, and an extra incentive to fatten up the piggy.

Caddo Mills great location!! Lots of land and they already test rockets there to provide a bonus spaceX R&D facility.
