Menlo Park. Los Angeles. Chicago. Washington, DC. New York. London. These cities share at least one thing in common: they are all home to current or future Telsa Motors stores. Tesla officially announced today that London will be the location of its first official EU regional sales and service center. Two more stores are planned for Münich and Monaco. All three are on schedule to open sometime in 2009. Unlike the nondescript Chicago store location, the London digs have an interesting car history. Until it went bust last fall, the building was used by the Segrave Supercar Club (sort of a ZipCar for the rich). Tesla-haters, feel free to make your comments about the, ahem, karma of the location now.
Tesla says they’re planning on starting European deliveries of the Roadster in late June and that, eventually, just as many Tesla vehicles will be sold on one side of the Atlantic as the other.
