That's my Nissan Leaf parked out front. No signs of activity, so I walked around the side and there were two Tesla Model S sedans parked outside. Taking a closer look through the open shop door made my jaw drop ...
Inside were eight more Model S's being prepped for customer delivery, along with a customer owned Roadster in for service. That's well over a million dollars worth of Teslas in one place.
I had a chance to chat with a customer who took delivery of his car yesterday and one of the service techs who was supervising the detailing activity. They confirmed the impression I got from the showroom yesterday that Tesla views Austin as a key market and is taking a serious initiative here. I wish them the best!
Maybe in two years when the lease is up on my Leaf, they'll have built their volume enough to pull the price down to something I can consider.
