Raleigh? Well it has to be red!
Being a North Carolina native I was pleasantly surprised to open my in-box to read the following:
TESLA RALEIGH NOW OPEN! Tesla is excited to announce the opening of our newest sales location in Raleigh, NC. The expansion of our retail network makes it more convenient than ever to explore Tesla ownership on the East Coast.
Schedule your appointment today to test drive the award winning Model S!
Tesla Raleigh 8831 Westgate Park Drive Raleigh, NC 27617 Store Hours Mon - Fri: 10am - 6pm Saturday: 10am - 5pm 919.614.6492
While on the west coast the California New Car Dealer Association reports that Tesla outsells Porsche, Volvo, Land Rover, Lincoln, and Jaguar ... and that is with just one EV model!
On the east coast and in North Carolina.... GAME ON!
Of Note: Two months ago a bill that would have seen Tesla forced to leave North Carolina (or rather at the time - not enter) due to their corporate-owned dealership stance, was split in two, leaving behind the portion of motion that would have prohibited Tesla from operating in the state. Today's announcement from Tesla is the result of that 'win'. The second half of the split bill will not come up for review until May of 2014.
