THE NEW GIGAFACTORY
For Turkey it will not be certainly easy to win the Tesla Gigafactory. As we know, competition is particularly nourished. Tesla already has discussed with several countries such as France and India. In all cases, the automaker expressed its appreciation for the discussions held. However, at the moment the only certainty is that a new Gigafactory will be built in Mexico. To find out what the other locations of the American company's new factories will be, you will need to wait a little longer. If there isn't a change of plans, an announcement should be made by the end of the year.
