Today The Telegraph released a report in which they spoke to the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk.
In this interview, Elon Musk explained his plans to expand the engineering capabilities of Tesla, particularly the plan to build a UK-based engineering facility in the UK.
Here’s what he said in a statement to The Telegraph:
“We have a lot of respect for the British automotive engineering talent.”
“Just look at Formula 1 – it amazes me how much British talent there is in that.
“We are likely to establish a Tesla engineering group in Britain at some point in the future.”
This comes after Tesla’s recent announcement that they would be taking over the German company, Grohmann Engineering, who are specialists in automated manufacturing.
This all comes as a move from Tesla to expand their production within Europe, but details for the launch have not yet been fully revealed.
When we do hear more, we will let you know.
