This year, Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) has quietly made its appearance in one of the best destinations globally. The auto company opened its store and service center in Las Vegas this year. Earlier in June, the electronic vehicle manufacturer opened a service center at 6260 Badura Ave, near Jones Boulevard and the Las Vegas Beltway, adding a sales floor in November.
Good response encouraging
“We noticed a lot of people coming through the door when it was just a service center,” said Tesla spokeswoman Alexis Georgeson to Review Journal. According to Alexis the response from the fans encouraged the company to offer sales.
Customers can test drive the Model S sports car in its new showroom, and can order and take delivery within three weeks to three months. The time taken in delivering the car depends upon the level of customization. Spokesperson Georgeson said that the store is not high pressure because the delivery is based on the number of orders made and there is no inventory push.
Tesla Model X delivery to start in 2014
Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) is owned by CEO Elon Musk, who is the co-founder of PayPal and also heads Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX. Musk is a major stakeholder of Solar City, a solar-panel installation and maintenance company, which established its Las Vegas office in August.
According to the company, the Model X from Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA), which will be available for delivery from 2014, is the “best of an SUV with the benefits of a minivan.” Those who have ordered recently may get their Model X by 2015.
