So, Estonia and Tesla share DNA right? That's what the brand-new PAKRI Smart Industrial City claims as it attempts to woo the electric automaker into considering Estonia for the European Tesla Gigafactory 2 site.
"If Tesla were a country, which would it be?"
“If Tesla were a country, it would probably be Estonia.”
The PAKRI website is coined Tesla Country. It is dedicated to welcoming the Tesla Gigafactory. Tesla Country touts fast speed, renewable resources, ideal location, technological advancement, and legalized self-driving. The website goes on to show details regarding the location and its benefits.
This is surely not the first video or advocacy of its kind, and there are bound to be more to follow.
Lithuanian citizens built a virtual Tesla Gigafactory using Minecraft, specifically directed to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is a known gamer. TopDutch.com also hopes for a Gigafactory 2 in the Netherlands. Spain, Sweden, Finland, and France, among others, have called out to the Silicon Valley automaker as well.
Once Model 3 production is well underway, perhaps by the end of this year, Tesla will disclose more details about future Gigafactory plans, and likely locations. According to Teslarati, there may be plans in place for not only Gigafactory 2, but also 3 and 4, and maybe even 5!
