The local mayor said that, last week the site in Santa Catarina, which is adjacent to the state capital of Monterrey, spans several thousand acres. Samuel Garcia said that the investment would serve as an anchor for Tesla suppliers and that the approval given to Tesla by Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who had previously voiced concerns regarding the scarcity of water, sent a positive signal to other potential investors.

Samuel Garcia mentioned that he had sent Lopez Obrador technical memos regarding the state’s industrial water supply. It is like a kind of guide. By authorizing and supporting Tesla, the president sent a message to the entire world that they should come to Mexico.
