Tesla Motors has been quietly implementing another set of expansion plans. The electric car maker is looking to hire workers for its second California facility, according to a Bloomberg report cited by VentureBeat.

While it already has established a Model S electric car facility in Fremont, California, Tesla is also poised to takeover Chrysler's former facility in Lathrop. The company has already secured building permits for the modification of the Lathrop plant and has posted 32 open positions on its site, the report detailed.

While Tesla seems to be focused on California, its next efforts will most likely be concentrated on areas beyond that state. Its highly publicized Gigafactory will produce large volumes of lithium-ion batteries for its electric cars. However, Silicon Valley is not yet an ideal place for green car manufacturers because of strict environmental rules in California, the report explained.

Tesla has already mentioned Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Nevada as the possible candidates for its next investment. The company will most likely reveal its plans near the opening date of the Lathrop facility, VentureBeat reported.
