Tesla does a lot of subcontracting to California companies. They could never grown as quickly without doing so.

The company that makes the portable charge cable “UMC” is Jabil, manufactured in Chihuahua, Mexico.

Subcontracting makes sense for many businesses, especially car companies. Even in an EV, there are too many components to build in-house. What I like about Tesla is that 55% of their parts content is North American and that may expand to 90% when the gigafactory rolls out.
