Austin-based Tesla plans to build a $3.6 billion semi-trailer plant in Nevada.

Austin-based automaker Tesla plans to build a $3.6 billion plant in Nevada to manufacture its electric semi-trailer, federal and state officials have said.

The facility is planned to be built in northern Nevada, who first mentioned the proposed plant on Monday night, according to Nevada Gov. Joe Lombardo. Lombardo said in his State of the Union address that he is “looking forward” to join Musk and Tesla in unveiling plans to build a plant that will make batteries and semi-trucks.

The White House on Tuesday confirmed plans for the facility, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Tesla already has a plant in Nevada, east of Reno Sparks, where it makes lithium-ion batteries and other electric vehicle components. It is possible that the new object may be in the same location.
