Tesla makes California the location of its global engineering headquarters.


CEO Elon Musk and California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday that Tesla’s new engineering headquarters will be in the former Hewlett-Packard offices.

The sudden revival of Tesla’s relationship with California may come as a surprise after the electric vehicle maker relocated and moved its headquarters from Fremont, California to Austin, Texas in 2021 after disputes with the state over the COVID-19 restrictions. Musk has also repeatedly criticized California for its overregulation and high tax burden.

You’re here tweeted he’s hiring for new engineering positions in California, which is believed to be a big part of why Newsom is backing the electric vehicle maker’s investment in the state. Sources told CNBC that the focus will be on engineers skilled in research development and artificial intelligence.

“California prides itself on being at the forefront of discovery, new ideas and innovation,” Newsom said, noting the state’s long relationship with Tesla. Newsom said he’s excited to work with Tesla to both transform the auto industry and strengthen California’s manufacturing dominance.
