Tesla To Officially Open NUMMI Factory Today

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Senator Dianne Feinstein will officially open the NUMMI plant in California today as preparations for full-scale production of the company’s Model S 4-door electric sedan draws ever closer. The NUMMI plant was closed down in April this year and has seen a remarkable reversal of fortune after being bought by Tesla (TSLA) from former owners Toyota for $42 million. The plant is capable of producing 500,000 vehicles per year or about 1% of global production, this should give Tesla plenty of room to grow over the coming years as new models are introduced.
