Tesla Motors will open seven new sales and service centers by the end of June in the U.S. and Europe, the all-electric car manufacturer said today.
The stores will have free web access and offer test drives of the vehicles.
In the U.S. stores in New York, Seattle and Chicago will open this month, followed by Miami. The company is also considering locations in Washington DC and Toronto. In Europe, Tesla will open stores in London later in June followed by Munich and Monaco.
We are rethinking almost every aspect of the automobile - from the powertrain to the customer experience, both online and in our stores, said Tesla CEO and Product Architect Elon Musk in a statement.
The San Carlos, California-based automaker has stores in Northern and Southern California which opened last year. The firm is the first on selling highway-capable electric vehicles in North America or Europe.
Its two products, the Roadster and Model S, sell for $100,000 and $49,900 respectively.
