This week Toyota Motor Corp and Tesla Motors struck a surprise deal to re-open the NUMMI plant in Fremont. For the last 25 years, Toyota and General Motors were partners in producing cars at the Fremont plant. The new partnership between Tesla and Toyota bears no resemblence to the GM/Toyota partnership. It will be a Tesla manufacturing facility with no reference to Toyota. Tesla is a small, 5 year old, Palo Alto company that produces electric cars. Toyota is an international conglomorate that knows how to build cars on a large scale. A perfect partner for Tesla. NUMMI stands for New United Motors Manufacturing Inc.
