While Tesla Motors Inc. is still not ready to tell the world where it will put its multibillion-dollar lithium-ion battery gigafactory, San Antonio is betting that its experience in automobile manufacturing will give it a leg up.

As much as I'd love to see this happen, I'm afraid Rick Perry doomed any hope of that plant being in Texas when he banned the sell of Teslas through the dealership loophole, because EVs are obviously devil's work.

Tesla is fighting the dealership battle all over the country, not just in Texas. The Texas Legislature only meets every two years, so right now, they can't push a bill through, unless the Governor calls a special session.

I saw Rick Perry on the news last night doing his best to promote Texas, I believe SA in particular, as a site for a new TESLA battery plant. My first thoughts on this are, who in San Antonio is the main cheerleader for this effort and which side of town, east, west or south, would have the pleasure of a battery factory in the neighborhood.

The San Antonio Economic Development Foundation leads the effort and is supported by city and state staff along with the city manager (and the mayor if he is around). My guess is that it goes south or possibly east of the city. The land parcel will need to be very large for this operation similar to Toyota.

In any event, don't hold your breath. While I would like to see it happen here, Reno has been the front runner since day one.
