ALBUQEURQUE, N.M. (AP) — Several New Mexico residents have pledged to donate their own land if it will help lure electric car company Tesla to the state.

KOAT-TV reported Wednesday some citizens are offering land in metro Albuquerque for a Tesla battery plant.

Businessman John Edward says he is willing to give up to 400 acres of his own land to reward entrepreneurs such as Tesla.

New Mexico Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela says multiple offers of donated land have come from all over the state.

New Mexico is one of several states which Tesla is considering including California, Texas, Arizona and Nevada.

Other states have been wooing the company with incentives and looser environmental restrictions.
