LATHROP, Calif. (AP) -- Electric car maker Tesla Motors is expanding its footprint in California.
The company has leased a 430,000-square-foot building in Lathrop, a community on Interstate 5 about 75 miles east of San Francisco. Tesla has not said what it plans to do with the space.
The building used to serve as a DaimlerChrysler parts distribution center, though it has sat vacant for several years.
Tesla currently has manufacturing space in the San Francisco Bay Area. It also plans to put up a massive battery factory, though California does not appear to be in the running for that.
The Sacramento Bee reports (http://bit.ly/1hkgCMw) that the Lathrop facility is too small for the battery plant.
