Alameda County’s Health authorities confirmed late Tuesday that Tesla was on track for a full reopening shortly. An analyst at CFRA, Garrett Nelson told MarketWatch that they are not surprised Alameda County blinked.
CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk had reopened the Fremont, Calif., plant on Monday in insolence of stay-at-home order to control the spread of the coronavirus along with after igniting Twitter and legal spats that prompted even President Donald Trump to chime in.
Nelson said, moving Tesla out of California, one of Musk’s threats, “would have been quite detrimental to state and local tax revenue, but perhaps even more detrimental to the reputation of the state and county as places to conduct business going forward given the massive attention surrounding the situation.”
He added that in the future, rest assured that Tesla’s growth will be taking place in states such as Nevada, Texas and elsewhere.
