Turkey’s President, Tayyip Erdogan, has asked Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, to think about opening a Tesla factory in Turkey, as per an announcement from Turkey’s communications directorate. Musk mentioned that many Turkish suppliers already work with Tesla, making Turkey a strong candidate for Tesla’s next factory location. Tesla hasn’t officially responded to this request yet.
