Tesla says it’s moving its headquarters to Austin

The electric carmaker Tesla is moving its headquarters to Austin, CEO Elon Musk announced Thursday at a factory under construction in Southeastern Travis County.

“Our factory is like five minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from downtown, and we’re going to create an ecological paradise here because we’re out on the Colorado River,” Musk said at an annual shareholder event. “It’s going to be great.”

The company displayed a Texas-themed logo immediately after Musk’s announcement with a lone star emblazoned on a belt-buckle-shaped oval and the words, “Don’t Mess With” under the company’s T symbol.
