Update, May 17: The AP reports that Austin and Tulsa are finalists to be locations for Tesla's new assembly plant.

Original post, May 15: A report from news and commentary site Electrek asserts that Elon Musk will put Tesla's next factory somewhere in the Austin area. From Electrek:


The people familiar with the project said that Musk has tasked the engineering team working at Gigafactory Nevada to start the process for the new factory, which is expected to make the Tesla Cybertruck electric pickup truck and the Model Y.

Musk reportedly wants to begin construction soon.

The new follows Musks's threat on Twitter last weekend to move the company to Texas or Nevada, which came in the middle of a dispute with the state of California over whether he could reopen his Alameda factory. The factory has reopened.
