Electric-car pioneer Tesla Motors is opening a showroom in The Gardens on El Paseo in Palm Desert. The showroom, which will total 2,000 square feet, is one of 200 such stores nationwide.
This showroom is intended to be a low-pressure environment for customers, allowing them to stay for hours while learning about electric vehicles and also giving them the opportunity to test drive the vehicles.
The real estate was formerly a Cole Hahn storefront and is easily visible to shoppers due to the removable window coverings. This is the second Coachella Valley location for Tesla as there is a dealership in Cathedral City. The move is expected to bring needed tax revenue to the Palm Desert area.
