Tesla may consider buying closing GM plants

Tesla CEO Elon Musk told CBS’s 60 Minutes he may be willing to buy some of the five factories General Motors will idle next year, making him the second rival in two days to step up with possible job-creating moves as GM takes political heat for cutting workers.

Musk made the statements in an interview with Leslie Stahl that aired Sunday.

GM CEO Mary Barra was in Washington last week meeting with members of Congress about her plans to close five factories in North America and lay off 14,700 workers. She is under pressure to keep some of those facilities opened.
