With all the focus seemingly on Supercharger expansion and getting the Model S to European buyers, it’s been awhile since Tesla announced the opening of a new US store.

“Our Fremont Factory Store is now open! Stop in.”

There’s that announcement we’ve been waiting for.

Tesla’s latest US store in Fremont, California is now open to the public.

Of note here is that this latest store is adjacent to Tesla’s Fremont factory.

How cool is that?ย  Now you can order a Tesla just a few hundred feet from where it’s made.

Tesla’s US store/gallery count now stands at 40.ย  Check the map below to see if there’s one near you.

Tax, license and a detailed list of all the standard and manufacturer-installed options and their retail prices must also be clearly listed on the “Monroney label” of each new car. American vs. Import Fees Many people mistakenly believe that the destination fee includes the transport of imported vehicles from their assembly plants overseas. This is not the case. The destination fee listed on a new car’s sticker represents only freight charges within the United States. So who pays for the international shipping? Well, you do. That cost is factored into the U.S. pricing on individual models by the American headquarters of each import manufacturer. For example, it may cost $500 per vehicle to ship a Mercedes C-Class from Germany to the Port in Florida. Mercedes-Benz USA, Inc., who is responsible for pricing in the U.S., must factor that cost into the MSRP of the vehicle.

Except that delivery charges are frequently not taxable so you don’t want it to be bundled into the price.

Oh, I did not know that.
Thanks.
