    I read about a sales center coming to Natick and stopped by to check it out. It's on 251 W. Central St. I was a little surprised by what I saw there. Lettering on the door reads "TESLA Service." Maybe it's going to be a sales and service center?

    Here is a posting with information on the Board of Selectmen meeting in Natick that forum members were part of. And they did an awesome job!

    The 251 W Central St location will be a "sales office" -- where people can get test drives and deal with the paperwork of buying a car. The Gallery in the Natick Mall will remain a display area only, with no sales activities -- status quo. All physical repairs/service will occur in the Watertown facility.

    The gallery at the mall can't be a true sales center for zoning reasons, thus the need for this third building.

    Is this location functional now? My wife scheduled a test drive for this Saturday and she was told to show up at the mall.

    Tesla must have its Class 1 Dealer license to give test drives, and that license was granted on the condition that the West Natick sales office be open. So, either the sales office is open or Tesla is getting ahead of itself.

    They usually leave the test car charging at the mall.
    Not sure if they have a charging facility on Central Ave.
    I should drop by since I drive by it frequently.
