Because the infrastructure we already have to support these types of facilities would take years to replicate in other areas.

Don’t want that anywhere near Louisiana.

I’d rather be producing the oil when EV bubble bursts and people come crawling back to ICE.

At around $.89/lb retail you better have some volume, baw.

You’ll be waiting a long time. Like it or not EV is going no where.

I don’t see why you can’t slap another plant in the river parishes.. the whole area is already full of plants

In an ideal world, the best place to locate would actually be on the inner harbor navigational canal in Orleans Parish. You have access to seven different railways and the only hurricane surge proof waterway on the Gulf of Mexico which sits on the Industrial Canal.

However, in real life, infrastructure, security, electricity costs, and workforce development rule this area out regardless of how much the state throws at them.

How do you figure? It looks like people are already realizing how impractical they are for most situations.

Power grids can’t handle many more of them, the limited range and charge time are a dealbreaker for many, some of them explode, lithium mining negates any environmental benefits, and people in Florida are learning the hard way they’re unfit for natural disaster situations.

That all adds up to the New Coke of automobiles.

They’ll remain as a niche option for big city drivers but that’s about it.

Odds are that it will not be hit again soon? It's not like it is in the perfect preffered path of gulf hurricanes.

Peak Louisiana.

But let’s be serious they can’t even get a Bucees, this is just Tesla posturing to get a better deal from Texas.

Port of Brownsville has the most real estate available of any deepwater port on the gulf coast, can easily handle Panamax vessels (and I think up to Aframax class tankers), and is currently 40+ deep, with expansion planned. It is also 17 miles inland and next to the SpaceX facility... seems like a no-brainer.


Brownsville is about to blow up. It’s gonna be the fastest growing city in Texas before long.

Ok.


1- Why not both? Why reject one over another? But…

2- Onshore Louisiana ain’t “drowning in oil” these days. At least not reserves operators find economical over other onshore areas like Permian, DJ, Powder and Bakken. Now…hopefully, when the Permian and DJ tiers are drilled, companies will find onshore LA worth coming back to. But it ain’t happening over the next 5 years.

Correct answer is Shreveport. Has the port on the River to handle the materials coming in from the gulf. Major crossroads of both rail and highway. Has old GE plant that can be revamped.
Desperately need more manufacturing jobs in this area.

This couldn’t be farther from reality. The EV market is exploding right now. Yes, for some of us that haul boats, or drive long distances, EV probably won’t be practical in our lifetime. However, for the VAST majority of drivers, a 300-mile-per-charge range is MORE than enough

Imagine if people gave up on the first automobiles because they weren’t as reliable as horses. Technology evolves but not overnight.
