Tesla is considering land near the Mexico City Airport for an assembly facility, a spokesperson for the president's office said. He also confirmed that the company is considering other sites for this purpose in the country.
Tesla is considering several options for building an assembly facility in Mexico. One of the sites being considered is land near the new Mexico City Airport, which serves the nation's capital, according to the spokesperson, Jesus Ramirez, reported BNN Bloomberg. He said the facility near the airport would give Tesla quick access to cargo. However, it is worth bearing in mind that the company usually uses sea or land transportation to receive supplies.
Ramirez also confirmed that Tesa is considering sites in the states of Nuevo León and Sonora for possible investment, which was known at the end of last year. Elon Musk visited Mexico in October 2022; in particular, he met with officials from Nuevo León, which borders Texas. At the time, rumors circulated that the state and Tesla were close to signing a deal and were reviewing final documents. Since then, there has been no information to confirm this.
