In the market for a Tesla? Pretty soon, you won’t have to go far for a test drive — or a charge — as the high-performance electric sports car maker plans to bring a new full-service dealership to Orlando.
Palo Alto, Calif.-based Tesla Motors of Florida Inc. signed a lease for a 2.57-acre, 33,750-square-foot warehouse in Interstate Park, 100 S. Lake Destiny Drive near Eatonville, where the car maker plans to build out a showroom, sales center, service center and charging station.
This would be a second Central Florida location for Tesla Motors Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA), as the company in 2013 opened a ministore and service center in Longwood. Tesla also is known for its creator Elon Musk, the man behind PayPal and SpaceX.
