Elon Musk flirts with Colorado and Texas as US states battle to be the site of Tesla’s HQ

US states are rushing to court Tesla CEO Elon Musk, after he threatened to move the company’s HQ out of California.

The billionaire is in a spat with California’s Alameda County over the closure of Tesla’s Fremont facility as part of a shelter-in-place order during the pandemic.

He tweeted on Saturday that he would be moving Tesla out of California.

“Frankly, this is the final straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately. If we even retain Fremont manufacturing activity at all, it will be dependent on how Tesla is treated in the future. Tesla is the last carmaker left in CA,” Musk tweeted.
