    The article describes the facility as a “service and delivery center.” Would a delivery center comport with Louisiana law that gives a monopoly on new car sales to franchised dealerships?

    I drove by today to check if there is any progress and it appears construction has begun. The building has been painted the Tesla dark grey but no signage. Construction company banner hanging on the fence and dumpster full of construction waste so I presume that they are clearing out the inside.

    I’m not sure of the exact wording of the law, but I think we would be in the same situation Texas is in. We would pick up the car in New Orleans, but probably would still have to go to the DMV afterwards to pay the taxes.

    So this service center is really going to happen? Me an my wife are looking at purchasing a Model 3 but the main thing holding us back is not having a service center close by. Picking up the car in Houston wouldn't be too bad but having to go to Houston for service is just out of the question. This is the first I see of a service center in New Orleans (The supercharger location has been coming soon for awhile now). I would think Tesla would be advertising this at least somewhere on their website. But, they have been kinda busy in the last few months so I completely understand.

    They are doing lots of service with mobile rangers, so going to Houston for service isn’t a given.

    I have a Model X and 3. The 3 I picked up in Houston (that was optional and I did it for quicker deliver) but all servicing is done by the mobile ranger. My X just had its two years service where they came and took it to a workshop location due to work that needed to be done. Other times they mobile ranger has serviced it at my office location.

    Thats good to hear. I thought the mobile ranger only handled problems and not service visits. We wIll ride by the location the next time we are in the city. It is about an hour from here, but we go to the city a few times a month. Now for a quote on a plug in the garage.....

    Drove by yesterday and it doesn't look like much progress has been made. I did see the Tesla grey but didn't see any sinage and it didn't look like any active construction. Granted, it was a saturday afternoon but it looks like it is still a good ways from being completed.
