The Captains Electric Service

Great news for rich white people living in St. Louis: Tesla is opening a service center in University City!

 

 

 

Nothing says money to burn like a $50,000 all-electric luxury sedan.  But in all seriousness, this announcement is pretty cool.  I am an enthusiastic supporter of electric cars, and having a service center in St. Louis means we could actually start seeing a few Tesla Model S on the road in the Gateway City.  Granted, it will take many improvements to the region’s infrastructure before electric cars become a novelty in St. Louis.  And without a Tesla dealer in the Midwest, it will take even more money to get the first few cars here.  But still, at this point without a service center these electric cars are not even an option.

And as an added bonus for me, the new Tesla service center is located at Olive and I-170 near my route to work.  So I might get a peek at the Model S during my morning commute next year!

 

 

Ciao,
