Despite the ban: Tesla starts production again

Musk will be on the production line himself, Musk wrote on Monday (May 11, 2020) on Twitter. "If someone is arrested, I will ask that it is only me." In Alameda County, where Tesla's Fremont plant is located, restrictions on going out are still in place to prevent the spread of the corona virus. Tesla filed a lawsuit against it over the weekend. Musk had threatened to move Tesla's California headquarters from Texas to Nevada, for example.

California Governor Gavin Newsom had promised to resume production in the coming week, shortly before Musk's tweet. The county health department tried to smooth the waves. It is assumed that Tesla will submit a proposal to restart production during the day, as legally required, and that an agreement can be reached on the schedule and schedule. According to regional media, the full parking lot in front of the Tesla plant was noticed even before the announcement.

Musk had downplayed the risk of coronavirus right from the start, calling the Alameda County restrictions on going out last week as "fascist." He had also tried to leave the work open as particularly indispensable in the pandemic, but was unable to get away with it. The vast majority of Tesla vehicles are built in Fremont, while production in the new second plant in China is just beginning. Musk is now also claiming that local authorities have illegally blocked the state's reopening plans.
