    In his interview on dannyscontentment, Darryl ruled out the centre of London (too expensive) but mentioned the A40/ M4 corridor as a possible location for the Sales and Service Centre.

    YouTube - Tesla Motors. Talking to Darryl Siry.

    Is there a London storefront yet? The story about the hiring of the new marketing VP alluded to some London offices.

    Nothing I am aware of, but the last exchange I had with DS on the subject said there would be a service centre (note - not necessarily sales at first, as with US East Coast ones) in place to support the May 09 deliveries.

    Isn't Knightsbridge the most expensive part of London ?

    It is - however if there is an upside of the current economy for Tesla, it is that they can get a good deal in a very nice part of town.

    In his press release, Elon says they have reached a deal for a location in Knightsbridge.

    Tesla to Open First EU Regional Sales & Service Center in London

    Here is a Google Streetview look at the road where the store will be.

    Here is a look at the location in its old guise:

    If you screw your eyes up a bit, you can pretend it's a Model S! :biggrin:


    There are no good shots of the building online, as far as I can see, but I will endeavour to get down there and rectify this.

    Store Opening

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know anything about the store opening? I would love to come along with my partner and see the car in the flesh and hear what Tesla have to say. I missed the opportunity to go to the London Motor show last weekend and see the Tesla. :(

    Just discovered where the store will be located from this website: http://wapedia.mobi/en/Tesla_Motors

    The address is: 49-51 Cheval Place, London.

    This is one company I'd love to help out!

    It would appear that google streetview has been removed for this street :(

    I now have to be in London on that day. I'll try to visit the store before my first work appointment which isn't far away from Cheval Place.

    The launch party is the in the evening and you need to be on the invite list. Whether the store will be open for business in the daytime , I am not sure.

    Malcolm, are you going?
