    The city has specifically created and designed a website to lure Tesla, describing itself as an innovative business environment and listing numerous advantages for the company.

    Joplin, a city in the state of Missouri, has offered Tesla more than $1 billion in incentives and savings to choose it as a location for the Cybertruck factory, according to the information on the website the city has launched.

    "HEY TESLA!‍ Joplin is offering a $1 Billion package of incentives and savings", the welcoming page says.

    The alluring package also includes a 1,042-acre site with retail access at a discount and local tax credits.

    Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted earlier that his company was choosing a location for the factory in the central US.

    The company has already received similar incentives from other cities and states to land its facilities there, including almost $750 million in subsidies for the Gigafactory 2 in Buffalo, New York, and $1 billion in incentives for the first Gigafactory near Reno, Nevada.
