Mexican president says Tesla to build plant in Mexico


MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Tuesday that electric car company Tesla has committed to building a plant in the city of Monterrey, an industrial hub in northern Mexico.

López Obrador said the promise came in a phone call he had Monday with Tesla head Elon Musk. López Obrador had previously ruled out the northern state of Nuevo Leon as a site for the plant because it has suffered severe water shortages. But he said Musk’s company had offered “a series of commitments to address the problem.”
