Jesús Ramírez, spokesman for the Mexican presidency, says Tesla is interested in building an assembly plant near AIFA, the new airport that AMLO’s government built in the State of Mexico.
Jesús Ramírez, the General Coordinator of Social Communication and Spokesperson for the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), told Reuters that Tesla is considering installing an assembly plant near the new Felipe Ángeles International Airport in the State of Mexico.
According to the spokesman, Tesla is contemplating setting up a plant in a developing industrial park about 3 kilometers (2 miles) from the AIFA and noted that the site could serve as a base for the company to export by air.
Ramirez gave no further details, but his statements add to those he gave to Mexico’s El Heraldo newspaper about possible plans for a Tesla investment there.
“Tesla will invest there … in an assembly plant, to export directly by air,” Ramirez told the newspaper.
According to Ramirez’s version, Tesla could invest in the T-MexPark, a major industrial park being built near the Felipe Angeles airport, two hours from Mexico City.
An AMLO government official says Tesla was shown the site, but they gave no indication of their plans.
Elon Musk, the electric vehicle maker’s CEO, has visited Mexico considering a possible investment in Nuevo León, where he has met with officials from the border state for the same reason, although Tesla has made no official statement on the matter.
And in the meantime it is defined if Tesla settles in Mexico, what is a fact is that Musk’s company is already offering some positions in different states of the neighboring country, including Nuevo Leon, State of Mexico, Jalisco and Mexico City, some to work locally and others remotely.
