Tesla Motors expands its retail stores in the U.S., starting deliveries for the world’s first premium sedan, the Model S.
On Friday, May 25th, the company will open its first U.S. retail store of 2012 in White Plains, New York at The Westchester shopping center. The store will exhibit the Model S drivetrain and will be provided with a Design Studio were customers can design their own Model S, and also an interactive touchscreen which will inform customers about the benefits of driving electric and about Tesla’s advanced technology.
“Our sales strategy is very different from the rest of the automotive industry — we put our stores in high foot-traffic locations so we can tell as many people as possible about Tesla’s incredible cars,” says George Blankenship, Tesla’s vice president of worldwide sales and ownership experience.
With this one, Tesla has 22 stores opened worldwide, planning to open four more this summer in the Fashion Square in Scottsdale, Arizona, 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, California, on Licoln Road in Miami Beach, Florida and in Washington Square in Portland, Oregon.
