Tesla may officially announce its newest facility, located in Mexico, as soon as next week.
Tesla has maintained an incredibly strong growth target for years now; 50% annual growth. Surprisingly, the company has consistently achieved this goal. To keep up with demand, the American automaker is looking to open another manufacturing facility. to me ReutersIt may be officially announced as soon as next week.
Tesla’s upcoming facility in Mexico was reported earlier this week after the company purchased land in the country. The new facility is located in Nuevo León, in one of the states of northeastern Mexico, just north of Monterrey. Prior to this land deal, Tesla CEO Elon Musk met with the governor of the Mexican state, Samuel Garcia, and the US ambassador to Mexico, Ken Salazar.
Details about the new facility are still fuzzy. It’s not clear what the new facility will produce, when it will go online, or what markets the facility will serve. However, many see it as a great opportunity for growth.
Tesla’s manufacturing facility in Mexico is excellent news for several reasons. Above all, with added manufacturing capacity on the continent, Tesla can more easily meet demand for its vehicles, which has been a constant problem over the past year. Moreover, it might give Tesla better access to the auto market in Mexico, which, while not nearly the size of the United States, is a large market poised for electrification. Finally, it could give Tesla the ability to deliver vehicles to underserved markets south of Mexico, including Central America and South America.
Tesla hasn’t been completely absent from the Mexican car market, far from it. The automaker has slowly but surely expanded its Supercharger and destination charging locations south of the border, even creating its own lane at the US border crossing for quick hops across.
This news comes at a low point for Tesla stock, and Tesla investors may see this new facility as a positive sign as the new year approaches. And while the news of a new production center may not return the stock to its previous highs, it may counteract the pessimism surrounding the stock over the past few months.
It would be interesting to hear any information released by Tesla or Elon Musk in the coming week(s) regarding the upcoming Mexico facility, especially as it brings a healthy dose of cautious optimism to Tesla fans and investors.
