Report says Nashville at or near top of list for new Tesla Cybertruck plant

An article from late last week on the WRAL TechWire site says Nashville is on the short list, maybe at the top of the sites being considered for the plant that will produce Tesla’s new Cybertruck.

According to the report, “Electric vehicle production is already underway in Tennessee. Nissan has been building the Leaf all-electric vehicle in Smyrna since 2010. Volkswagen is planning to turn out electric vehicles at its plant in Chattanooga. Access to parts suppliers for electric vehicles is a factor in whatever location Tesla selects.”
