It has been a long time coming, but Tesla owners in the US Caribbean island of Puerto Rico will soon have their very own Service Center.
According to a permit posted to the gates of a building in San Juan, Tesla has purchased the space to be used as a service center only.
The building, located at 381 Calle Juan Calaf, was previously occupied by ACT Security Systems, and features plenty of office space attached to a large warehouse. That space will likely be converted to house multiple service bays, reports Teslarati.
According to aerial photos of the site from Google Maps, there is also a large parking lot at the rear of the building.
The addition of a Service Center (and hopefully a Delivery Center too) in Puerto Rico will be warmly welcomed by Tesla owners. Without an official presence on the island, current owners are left to rely on third-parties if their EVs require repairs. Insurance for Tesla’s is also difficult to obtain due to the lack of an official Service Center.
The Caribbean isn’t the only place Tesla is preparing to expand in to. Recent job postings for Saskatoon, Winnipeg, and Halifax all indicate Tesla will soon be opening their first locations in those provinces. This is especially important as the automaker recently changed their Carrier Direct policy and ended home deliveries.
