Tesla to arrive in Nuevo Leon: AMLO

MEXICO – The President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, informed that Tesla, owned by businessman Elon Musk, will invest in the construction of an automotive plant in Mexico, which will be located in the state of Nuevo Leon.

"Things are going well. We talked with Mr. Elon Musk, the director of Tesla, there is already an understanding, yes they are going to dedicate the investment to Mexico and the plant is going to be established in Monterrey with a series of commitments for the problem of water shortage, they are going to help in this sense," he said.

The federal president explained that he spoke twice with the businessman, who is also the owner of Twitter, via videoconference.

"He was very receptive, understanding our concerns and accepting our proposals that will be announced starting tomorrow, this will mean a considerable investment and many jobs," López Obrador stated.

The president affirmed that the first commitment will be the use of recycled water in the entire manufacturing process of electric vehicles, including for the painting of the cars and that he is satisfied with the agreement that was reached.

It is worth mentioning that Tesla's arrival in Mexico has been discussed since last October, when Musk visited Nuevo Leon, where he met with Mariana Rodriguez, wife of Governor Samuel Garcia.
