Tesla, Toyota teaming up in California: governor
FREMONT, California (Reuters) - Japanese carmaker Toyota Motor Corp and electric carmaker Tesla Motors plan to partner on electric vehicles in California, the state's governor said on Thursday.
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, speaking at an unrelated event at search giant Google Inc's headquarters, said Tesla will electrify one of Toyota's cars in California, a spokeswoman for the governor confirmed him as saying.
Silicon Valley-based Tesla is holding a press conference later on Thursday where it said it plans to make a "significant and exciting" announcement. The governor will be at the briefing, to be held at the company's Palo Alto, California, facility.
