Tesla to Build EV and Battery Storage Factory in Indonesia

By Birdie Schmidt

Tesla is inching towards signing an agreement to build an electric vehicle and battery factory in Indonesia, it has been reported.

It is understood the factory could be built at an industrial complex in central Java, and work to start construction could take place by the end of 2022.

It would be Tesla’s third electric vehicle factory outside its home market, and would help to supply growing demand for electric vehicles in the South-East Asian and Pacific region. It may also rule out any possibility of a Tesla giga-factory in Australia, at least in the short term.
