Since Australia has no more local car manufacturing companies anymore and since its way past the point where it is
cheaper to buy cars internationally and sell them for more profit. I wonder if Elon and the Tesla team have worked out
that they could build out a new gigafactory in Australia to which it would pump out say Model Y and Cybertruck?

Or more realistically just a gigafactory that would be vertically integrated with the lithium mines here and just pump out solar
and batteries for the whole of Australia and maybe pump a couple Model Y's? They probably have it on their radar but it probably makes
more sense to build up the the higher demand markets like China and Germany first and maybe Australia last.

I just wish Australia had its own Elon Musk and wanted to make Australia great for its people. Just my 2 won worth

First things first I would agree with you on this the other thing is I would highly expect Western Australia to be the main front runner for Australia because of the fact they have the mines and the manufacturing of both the lithium and the other minerals needed for the batteries beyond that give us the semi the CyberBrute as well as model y plus solar because we are also quite patriotic that if we were building our own cars people would by them in droves
