Die Verhandlungen, wann und wie Tesla sein Werk in Kalifornien wieder hochfahren darf, dauerten Firmenchef Musk offenbar zu lange. Seit heute läuft die Produktion wieder – entgegen aller Corona-Verbote.

Tesla is restarting production today against Alameda County rules. I will be on the line with everyone else. If anyone is arrested, I ask that it only be me.

Yes, California approved, but an unelected county official illegally overrode. Also, all other auto companies in US are approved to resume. Only Tesla has been singled out. This is super messed up!

Musk continued to ramp up production at the company’s Fremont facilities Tuesday, where the company produces its Model 3 and Model Y electric vehicles.

‚GIVE PEOPLE BACK THEIR GODDAMN FREEDOM‘: Elon Musk bashes US shelter-in-place orders as ‚fascist,‘ says they’re ‚forcibly imprisoning‘ people in their homes

„If somebody wants to stay in their house, that’s great and they should be able to,“ he said. „But to say they cannot leave their house and that they will be arrested if they do: that’s fascist. That is not democratic; this is not freedom. Give people back their goddamn freedom.“

Elon Musk says shelter-in-place orders during COVID-19 are ‘fascist’

“The expansion of shelter-in-place, or as we call it, forcibly imprisoning people in their homes, against all their constitutional rights, is, in my opinion, breaking people’s freedoms in ways that are horrible and wrong, and not why people came to America and built this country,” Musk said. “What the fuck!”

Saudi Arabia Might Not Fund Elon Musk’s Take-Tesla-Private Plans After All

In August alone the entrepreneur has become the subject of an SEC investigation, made a dubious Twitter announcement about taking his company Tesla private, and gave a teary interview to the New York Times, causing Tesla shares to plummet.

Now it looks like the Saudi Arabian sovereign wealth fund, the main candidate to take Tesla private, might actually invest in a Tesla rival instead.

Update on Taking Tesla Private

(13-8.2018) I left the July 31st meeting with no question that a deal with the Saudi sovereign fund could be closed, and that it was just a matter of getting the process moving. This is why I referred to “funding secured” in the August 7th announcement.
