According to an article in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Tesla has purchased land in Richmond to open a sales facility. With any luck, it would also include a service center! Of course, the Virginia Auto Dealers Association is doing everything they can to try to prevent it. Their first move is a civil suit to try to prevent the DMV from even holding a hearing. It is interesting that they sued both the DMV and Tesla, which suggests that they do not believe that they can use their influence with the DMV to head them off administratively.
