Elon Musk says that President-elect [Trump] has a strong emphasis on US manufacturing and so do we [Elon -Spacex -Tesla Motors]. We [Tesla Motors] are building the biggest factory in the world right here, creating US jobs… [Elon] think we may see some surprising things from the next administration. We don't think they will be negative on fossil fuels… but they may also be positive on renewables.

Tesla currently employs over 30,000 people, more than 25,000 of which are in the US. Tesla wants to add over 3,000 manufacturing jobs at its factory in Fremont, California, 1,000 at its solar panel factory in Buffalo, New York, and over to 6,500 at the Gigafactory in Nevada.

Tesla claims that the 2170 cell offers the best performance at the lowest production cost in an optimal form factor for both electric vehicles and energy products. By 2018, the Gigafactory will produce 35GWh/year of lithium-ion battery cells, which is nearly as much as the rest of the world's battery production combined.

Currently, with a total of 1.9 million square feet of footprint, the Gigafactory is less than 30 per cent complete. Once complete, the Gigafactory will have the largest footprint of any building in the world and will provide direct employment to 6,500 people
