On June 15, 2016, the Executive Secretary of the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board docketed an application submitted by the City of San Jose, California, grantee of FTZ 18, requesting expanded subzone status subject to the existing activation limit of FTZ 18, on behalf of Tesla Motors, Inc. (Subzone 18G), in Fremont, California.

Pursuant to the authority delegated to the FTZ Board Executive Secretary (15 CFR Sec. 400.36(f)), the application to expand Subzone 18G is approved, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Section 400.13, and further subject to FTZ 18's 2,000-acre activation limit.
