Tesla Motors could have a production plant in Russia in the near future. At least that's what he said Elon Musk, founder of the company at an event for students organized by the Kremlin.

Elon Musk TeslaDuring his presentation, Musk praised Russia's record of achievement in space and welcomed opening a factory in that country in the future. “Over time we will seek to have factories in other parts of the world. I think we are close to establishing a Tesla presence in Russia; it would be great"the billionaire noted.

Musk's comments quickly provoked a reaction from Russian governors, who invited the manager to build a car factory in their regions.

However, Russia would not a priori be the most suitable place to establish an electric car factory since they were hardly sold 700 electric cars last year in the country.

TeslaCurrently, Tesla already produces cars in United States and in China, while it is in the middle of the construction phase of a new factory in Germany, in the outskirts of Berlin. In addition, it will install a new plant in Texas (United States).
