Tesla, Elon Musk’s electric vehicle company, has moved its headquarters from Palo Alto, California, to Austin, Texas.
According to the New York Post, the electric vehicle company filed an 8-K form with the US Securities and Exchange Commission to relocate its corporate headquarters to 13101 Harold Green Road in Austin, the location of its Gigafactory.
“On December 1, 2021, Tesla, Inc. relocated its corporate headquarters to Gigafactory Texas at 13101 Harold Green Road, Austin, Texas 78725,” the filing says.
Tesla will continue to operate its electric vehicle factory in Fremont, California, and will increase output by 50%.
“I’m excited to announce that we’re moving our headquarters to Austin, Texas,” Musk said at an annual shareholders meeting recently.
“Just to be clear, though, we will be continuing to expand our activities in California.”
Musk relocated to Texas last year as SpaceX expanded its presence in the country’s southernmost state.
Tesla began construction on its next US Gigafactory outside Austin in 2020, and a new video of the project shows the area is already becoming a bustling industrial area.
Jeff Roberts, an electric car enthusiast, uploaded a video to YouTube showing the factory’s progress since day one.
Tesla initially referred to the factory as the Cybertruck Gigafactory because the automaker intended to manufacture the electric pickup truck there.
However, Tesla originally intended to produce the Model Y at the factory, which was later renamed “Gigafactory Texas.”
Tesla also intends to establish battery cell production at the factory and turn it into a public “ecological paradise.”
Furthermore, the electric car manufacturer recently posted a Tesla Gigafactory Texas battery-related job opening on its Careers page. Automotive President Jerome Guillen shared the job posting on his official LinkedIn account.
