    Hello everyone
    I am new to this forum and I have a few questions I hope someone can answer.

    Recently I saw a Black Model S with number plate "electric car" in Brisbane QLD Australia and I was wondering if the owner was a local or someone just passing through.
    I've been following Tesla and Model S for years on forums and seen lots of pictures but it was quite exciting to see one on the road in my city.
    It's a great looking vehicle.

    That is not too important but I also recently noticed a position advertised with Tesla for a product specialist in Brisbane Australia.
    As far as I know there is no Tesla dealership in Brisbane and what I was wondering is does anyone knows when and if that is likely to happen?

    Regards
    Daryl

    You might try being a little more specific with your thread topic and post in the Australia forum.

    I think that position is for being at the local store, greet people, introduce the car to potential customer, take them on test drives, and inking the order, etc.

    Welcome to the forum. I suggest you take TexasEV's advice and find the Aussie sub-forum - they'll know more about how your country's rules work. "Up" here your question will tend to get lost.

    I'll report this thread to the other Mods in hope that the Australian moderator takes it over to there - that's a polite, well-behaved corner of the forum in any case.

    Hey DarylMc. Welcome to the forum!

    I'm only new around here myself but happy to try to help. Tesla is building a Service Centre (as opposed to a dealership, the Service Centres are all Tesla O&O) in Brisbane but AFAIK they haven't announced when it will open. However given they have announced the Supercharger network will extend to Brisbane by the end of this year, it makes sense, to me at least, that they'd open a Service Centre there sometime this year.

    Moderators note.
    Thank you whoever moved this to the Aus\NZ section.
    I have updated the thread title to be more specific.

    Hi moemoke
    Thanks for the link.

    I'm interested to have a closer look at Model S and show other people that electric cars have arrived.
    Tesla has done such a great job to make their vehicles available here.
