As expected, Tesla has just announced its next Gigafactory and it should be in Mexico, while also showing a render of the brand new factory that has the outline of “TESLA” on its roof, which looks covered in solar panels.

Elon Musk announced at Investor Day’s Q&A session that “we’re excited to announce we’re going to be constructing a Gigafactory in Mexico”, situated near Monterrey within the state of Nuevo Leon.
Yesterday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador spilled the beans on the Gigafactory announcement, noting Tesla would mention it officially on Investor Day.
“He was very responsive, understanding our concerns and accepting our proposals,” AMLO said, referring to his phone call with Musk. “I need to thank Mr. Elon Musk for being very respectful, attentive and understanding of the importance of addressing the issue of water scarcity.”
Gigafactory Mexico joins Tesla’s latest Gigafactories in China, Germany, Texas, Nevada and Recent York. Tesla also has a serious factory in Fremont, California.
