Tesla reveals plans for NUMMI plant
Back in May, Tesla purchased the former NUMMI plant that closed in April. Tesla has now announced that it will be building its Model S and future Tesla vehicles in this plant. The announcement is hardly a surprise; we all knew Tesla would be using the plant for production when it bought the place.
Tesla and Toyota will be working together as well. Tesla will be providing the electric drive train and components to Toyota to use in EVs that it is working on for the US and its home market. The Tesla S will be an interesting EV with a price lower than the Roadster.
The S will be able to drive for 300 miles on a single charge according to Tesla. If the company can live up to that promise, the Model S will be able to drive much further on a single charge than most other EVs on the market today.
