[Ed. – Technically, he threatened to move it to Nevada too, but who believes that? Musk has actually been a bit surprising in recent weeks, making noises like a libertarian and selling off all his worldly goods (or at least saying he’s doing so).]
Tesla CEO Elon Musk threatened Saturday to pull the company’s factory and headquarters out of California in an escalating spat with local officials who have stopped the company from reopening its electric vehicle factory.
On Twitter, Musk also threatened to sue over Alameda County Health Department coronavirus restrictions that have stopped Tesla from restarting production its factory in Fremont south of San Francisco.
“Frankly, this is the final straw,” he tweeted. “Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately.”
