Tesla Service Center To Open In New Orleans

JUL 19 2014 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 3

New Orleans seems an unlikely location for a Tesla service center, but one is coming “soon” to The Big Easy.

For Tesla, this will be its first service center in the central Gulf Coast region.

We put “soon” in quotes because reportedly Tesla has been on the hunt for a location and staff in New Orleans for a few months now; but it will arrive at some point this year.

It’s believed that there’s only ~50 Teslas on the road of Louisiana (maybe a dozen or so in New Orleans), so demand for this service center is likely low at this point in time.  However, Tesla is always looking to expand its service into new areas, so why not put one in New Orleans.

The idea is that if a service center pops up in a particular area, then potential Tesla buyers who are on the fence might just step over and make the purchase.  It makes sense to us, as servicing, even for a low-maintenance  Tesla, will be required from time to time and nobody likes the hassle of having to drive/transport a vehicle hundreds of miles to the nearest service center.

Tesla has the worlds worst schedule discipline. Don’t hold your breath…

Tesla showed a service center coming soon to the Nashville, TN area for a good 18 months before opening one a couple of months ago in Brentwood, TN, a suburb of Nashville. Tesla’s map icon is off a little bit, as the service center is south of Nashville along I-65. No super charger, but there is an 80amp Tesla wall charger on-site.

My point is, it may take a while for them to pull the trigger on opening a service center in New Orleans.
