Talking about bringing the future to your state:
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson says his state will be home to a plant for Tesla Motors. The 35 (m) million dollar facility will produce all-electric, four-door, five-passenger sedans that will sell for at least 50 thousand dollars.
The California-based company says it will produce ten-thousand electric vehicles a year.
Now, I'm clearly not rich enough to afford one of these awesome vehicles. But with plants like this springing up all over the country, it won't be long before we'll be seeing more and more totally electric vehicles for reasonable prices.
Also, the article notes 400 high tech jobs that will be coming to New Mexico. Here, here.
