It is planning to build a major new ‘regional hub’ that will be a centre for servicing for the whole region.

The 18,000 square metre site will be created on a major plot of land at the University of Wolverhampton Science Park.

It is considered a perfect position because of its proximity to junction two of the M54.

The move by Tesla cements the region’s reputation as a skills base for battery-powered cars.

The Science Park site is only a short distance from the Jaguar Land Rover’s i54 engine plant, which is being transformed into a battery car plant, with electric units being transported to the factory and then fitted into cars.
