Australians have been enthusiastic about the pioneering EV brand Tesla, with more than 1400 Model S and Model Xs sold in 2017 across the country and many reservations made for the upcoming mass-market EV, the Model 3.
However, there is a snag: currently, there are only four Tesla service centres in Australia, all on the east coast: one in Melbourne, one in Brisbane and two in Sydney (one of these being the recently opened Alexandria service centre).
Now it seems that this disparity will be addressed by the end of next year, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
On Wednesday, he posted on social media platform Twitter that upon reviewing Tesla service locations in North America, he realised, “we have major gaps in geographic coverage! Sorry for this foolish oversight”.
