Tucson courting car maker Tesla Motors for 6,500 jobs

TUCSON, AZ – City officials confirmed Sunday that they have made a bid for electric-car maker Tesla Motors to consider Tucson for the site of a massive battery factory that would employ 6,500 people.

The city of Tucson recently submitted a formal proposal to become the headquarters for the 10 million-square-foot plant, the Arizona Daily Star reported.

Mayor Jonathan Rothschild said the proposal highlights land within the city that has access to the Union Pacific mainline and the major interstates.

“We are the home to the Mars exploratory mission at the University of Arizona and known nationally as the Solar City,” Rothschild said. “I think Tesla will feel right at home in Tucson.”

The city is also offering tax incentives on top of any offered by the Arizona Commerce Authority.
