    Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the electric-car marker will consider buying one of the factories General Motors will shut down as part of its divisive restructuring plan.

    GM disclosed last month that it would shutter several assembly plants in North America by 2019 and end production of six car models in a bid to cut costs and better position the company to focus on electric and autonomous vehicles. The move, which is expected to result in roughly 15,000 layoffs, drew sharp criticism from President Trump and lawmakers in states affected by the layoffs.

    With Tesla in the midst of ramping up production of its flagship Model 3 sedan, Musk told CBS “60 Minutes” that his firm would consider acquiring one of GM’s facilities.
