When will Tesla Victoria open?
Sources also tell Drive Tesla the automaker is targeting a summer opening for the new location. The site will initially used as a Delivery Center, before later opening the service side of the operation.
A Delivery Center will be welcomed news for new owners on Vancouver Island who currently have to travel to Vancouver to pick up their cars. It will be especially good news for those living in Victoria, which has the highest per capita rate of EV adoption in North America.
This will be the third Tesla Service Center in the province. There is currently one open in Vancouver, with another in Surrey currently undergoing renovations that will likely open in the spring.
