Elon Musk tweeted that Tesla is filing a lawsuit against Alameda County immediately. The unelected and ignorant “Interim Health Officer” of Alameda is acting contrary to the Governor, the President, our Constitutional freedoms and just plain common sense!
Elon Musk said that
Frankly, this is the final straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately. If we even retain Fremont manufacturing activity at all, it will be dependent on how Tesla is treated in the future. Tesla is the last carmaker left in CA.

The Palo Alto Mayor wants to keep Tesla in California.
Palo Alto Mayor here. I would be really sad and disappointed if @Tesla left @cityofpaloalto, and stand ready to help. I truly appreciate having a cutting edge company based here, employing people, paying taxes, and helping to solve the climate crisis. Happy to help @elonmusk. https://t.co/LYsu0gbPfa

David Lee indicates that if Alameda County compromises then Tesla will keep Fremont Production. Tesla will move HQ and expand production in Nevada and Texas as soon as possible. They could make tent structures in Nevada and get building permits quickly.
