He said the company will "move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately" and "if we even retain Fremont manufacturing activity at all, it will be dependent on how Tesla is treated in the future."
Tesla also filed lawsuit against Alameda County
Tesla has also filed a lawsuit against the Alameda County to get the restriction removed and plant re-opened.
In the case, the company alleged the extended restriction is a "power grab" by the county, especially considering that California's Governor has said manufacturers would be allowed to open.
It said the county has defied the Governor's order and is going against federal and California Constitution.
Musk also says Tesla has been singled out
Yes, California approved, but an unelected county official illegally overrode. Also, all other auto companies in US are approved to resume. Only Tesla has been singled out. This is super messed up!
On Monday, California's Governor Gavin Newsom said the state has had "very constructive conversations" with the officials at Alameda County and Tesla, and the company might be able to open up 'as early as next week'.
But, now, given that the automaker has acted way earlier and without any authorization, it remains to be seen how the Governor's office and the county will respond.
County asked Tesla to give a 're-opening' plan on Monday
"We learned that the Tesla factory in Fremont had opened beyond Minimum Basic Operations. We have notified Tesla that they can only maintain Minimum Basic Operations until we have an approved [re-opening] plan that can be implemented in accordance with the local public health Order."
