>I just don't understand why Tesla is slow in expanding to other countries

Tesla is expanding as fast as they can. After huge struggles they finally got their Fremont plant working right. Then they immediately set to work building a plant in China, and got done remarkably fast.

Now they are going to build a plant in Europe. Probably next will come India, and then maybe Latin America or the Middle East, and there I suppose Israel would be the best location.




Israel is not a good location for a Middle East factory. Most countries in the region will not trade with it, and even those that will, like Jordan and Egypt, do not have free trade or good transportation links with the country.


You know, that's a good point. Maybe I'm wrong.


no one said building Teslas in Israel... They don't sell here at all.


GP did say that:
