Arizona could be in the running for Tesla Motors’ new battery plant

Tesla Motors is looking to build a large new factory in North America to make battery cells for its upscale, high-powered electric vehicles.

The Phoenix area — in particular Chandler — could be in the running for the new factory.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said during a conference call earlier this week the Palo Alto, Calif.-based automaker is looking at manufacturing its own battery cells to keep up with demand. Musk said the factory would likely be in North America and would be solar-powered. The company manufacturers its electric cars at a plant in Fremont, Calif.

We’ve heard the Valley could be in the running for the possible battery plant. There is available land and space in the Valley including former Motorola space in Chandler. There’s also plenty of parcels and space in other parts of the Valley ranging from Goodyear to the Mesa Gateway Airport area.

A Tesla spokesman declined comment.
