Why would it do that?California will kill this car.
Because of high costs? Tesla is getting significant tax breaks to set up shop in CA and remain a CA company.
If the tax breaks weren't enough to offset the cost of doing business, then they would have moved to New Mexico anyways.
Part of the reason of remaining in CA (and in the Bay Area), is the talent base of the SF Bay Area, and the burgeoning green/green-tech business environment. Plus being a green company in a region that is focused on being green and sustainability gives Tesla a little extra aura about it.
