Tesla’s Engineering HQ Remains in California, Says Elon Musk

Tesla, despite moving its corporate headquarters to Texas, has announced that it still considers California to be its global engineering home base. The electric vehicle (EV) company will use a former Hewlett-Packard building in Palo Alto as its new engineering headquarters, which CEO Elon Musk said would be “effectively a headquarters of Tesla.” Musk added that the company’s plant in Fremont, which it bought in 2010 from a joint venture of General Motors and Toyota Motor Corp., will increase production to over 600,000 vehicles this year.
