TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson is picking up speed in its effort to get the Tesla car company to build a multi-billion dollar factory here.

Earlier this week, the Tucson city council passed a resolution inviting Tesla officials to Tucson for a visit and now both the Tucson Chamber of Commerce and TREO signed on to support the resolution.

Tesla will pick from four states for a huge factory that makes batteries. The factory would employ more than 6,000 people.

It appears Reno, Nevada is the frontrunner, but Tucson officials say Tesla may be also interested in Tucson for other parts of its operation.
