Tesla Officially Moved Its Headquarters to Austin
It’s official. Tesla has moved its corporate headquarters to Austin.
Tesla announced in a SEC filing that it relocated its headquarters Wednesday to the Tesla Gigafactory site at 13101 Harold Green Road.
The filing comes less than two months after Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced the relocation at the company’s annual shareholders meeting.
At the meeting, Musk said Tesla will continue to produce vehicles in California and Nevada, but he noted the company is running out of room to expand at its plant in Fremont, California.
Musk went on to say the company would “continue to expand in California – significantly – but even more so here in Texas.”
Tesla is in the process of building a four- to five-million-square-foot gigafactory near the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
Musk has said the facility will produce Tesla’s new Cybertruck and Tesla Semi in addition to Model Y and Model 3 vehicles “for the eastern half of North America.” The gigafactory could employ at least 5,000 people.
Tesla’s website currently lists about 350 open positions in Austin.
Musk disclosed last December that he had personally moved from California to Austin.
Meanwhile, Musk’s SpaceX is also establishing a presence in Austin with a new factory that develops equipment for Starlink, a branch of SpaceX aimed at developing high-speed, low latency broadband internet via small, low-orbit satellites.
SpaceX has two other locations in Texas — one in McGregor and another in the Brownsville and South Padre area.
