Tesla Motors to Officially Open Tesla Factory

The former NUMMI factory closed in April 2010. Tesla purchased the factory in May to build the Model S and future Tesla vehicles. The Tesla Factory is the only auto assembly plant in California, and the first facility dedicated exclusively to mass production of electric vehicles.

The Tesla Factory will combine the best automotive and Silicon Valley talent within a proven manufacturing facility to produce the car of the 21st century, Model S. The Model S will be the first electric premium sedan designed from the ground up to take full advantage of the electric vehicle architecture.

Credentialed media is invited to attend the official unveiling and press conference. (Tours of the Factory for video crews are available by appointment from 9am to 1 pm, Wednesday, October 27th.) Media must RSVP for security access. Only credentialed media will be admitted.
