Electric car company, Tesla officially opened the doors to their new California plant just a few months after the building had been shuttered. Tesla’s Model S will be produced in the plant that served for the last 16 years as a manufacturing facility for New United Motor Manufacturing (NUMMI).
The Fremont, California plant had originally opened in 1984 and closed earlier this year making it possible for Tesla to open one of the last car production facilities in the state. While the Tesla Roadster is considered a luxury car, the Tesla S which will be made at this plant is considered the economy car of the company’s line. The all electric car will have various ranges of miles it can go on one charge depending on the battery pack chosen when purchased. The car can go anywhere from 160 to 300 miles on one charge and can go from 0 to 60 in just five and a half seconds. The “economy car” will still cost upwards of $50,000 making it geared towards the upper middle class.
