Tesla opens new store and service centre in West London


Tesla has officially opened its second UK store in West London – Park House, Horton Road, West Drayton, UB7 8JD.

The new Tesla store features a Model S design studio, a seven-bay service area, and the UK’s first purpose-built two-bay delivery centre.

Tesla say that by the end of 2014, customers will be able to visit Tesla stores and service centres across the country. They are currently recruiting for upcoming sales and service facilities in Crawley, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol, Newcastle, and Edinburgh.

The new stores are planned in anticipation of delivering their most affordable electric vehicle (EV) yet: the Model 3. Expansion in the UK is forecast to coincide with the building of Tesla Gigafactories and increased production of the Model S at Tesla’s main plant in Fremont, CA.

The Model S arrived in the UK for the first time in June 2014.The car has been well received, suggesting that the UK could be a major market area for Tesla, especially once they add the Model 3 to their line-up.

Tesla also announced plans for an exclusive Model S customer airport shuttle to Heathrow from the new store and service centre. The pre-bookable service will allow customers the opportunity to have their car serviced whilst away on holiday or business. Tesla will drop off drivers, passengers, and luggage at the airport in time for their flights and meet them in arrivals on their return.

“By taking any hassle out of servicing and flying, I believe that we can delight our customers,” said Georg Ell, Tesla’s UK country director. “The location of our new West London store and service centre makes a perfect base for this service.”
