Tesla Continues European Expansion – 30 New Stores/Service Centers Opening Soon
Tesla Motors continues its expansion efforts in Europe on at least two fronts.
According to Bloomberg, Tesla “plans to expand its network of fast-charging stations to enable owners of the Model S sedan to drive across Europe by the end of this year.”
We believe that statement to be incorrect. It should instead state something along the lines of “to enable owners of the Model S sedan to drive across Western Europe by the end of this year.”
On the store/service center front, Bloomberg claims:
“Tesla, which has at least 36 sales outlets from Sweden to Italy…plans to open more than 30 new service centers and stores in Europe as it anticipates a jump in sales for the Model S.”
Tesla predict increase Model S sales this year throughout Europe, so the opening of additional stores/service centers will be essential to support this growth.
