Tesla has narrowed its hunt for the Cybertruck’s mill to Austin, Texas and Tulsa, Oklahoma according to the latest reports.
An unnamed source maintains Tesla officials visited two sites in Tulsa last week but stressed that no decision has been made.
SF Gate reports that the factory, which will apparently be the company’s largest at the United States, may also serve as a second site to build the Model Y as well as tackling production of their Cybertruck. Tesla has said it wants to build a factory in the center of the country and close to East Coast markets.
The mayors of both Austin and Tulsa, Steve Adler and G.T. Bynum, declined to comment on whether their towns were chosen as finalists. But, Bynum did jump online to further encourage Tesla to choose his city, stating that “ both Tesla and Tulsa were forged in the exact same soul ” they were “both founded by pioneers who dreamt big and made it happen. ” He included that “Tulsa is a city that doesn’t stifle entrepreneurs — we all now revere them. ”
The new Tesla mill would combine its facilities at Fremont and Reno in the United States and its own factory in Shanghai along with a factory currently under construction in Germany.

News of Tesla narrowing down its choice to the Cybertruck plant comes about a week following primary executive Elon Musk endangered to move manufacturing and Tesla’s headquarters out of California due to a row about the county’s shelter-in-place orders. It appears highly unlikely that this will eventuate because it might require Tesla to shoot its important gathering plant offline for months while moving heavy equipment.
