The expansion will open up many new positions within the company, helping to accelerate efforts to build full self-driving technology and robots.
During the announcement, the Governor emphasized that he was glad that Tesla was born in California and noted the achievements of the manufacturer, which have benefited not only the United States but the whole world. The state has also become an integral part of Tesla's success. The company's cars are the best-selling vehicles there.
