    Tesla in Tampa

    Several of us have heard/read from/in various sources that Tesla is planning a service center somewhere in SWFL. Looking at the reservations map Tampa or Orlando seem most likely and we'd probably all be happy with Tampa being quite central for most of us. Let your opinion be heard and maybe we can give Will some good feedback to encourage Tesla.....

    How about Ybor City or next to Burns Steak House?

    For a location that is intended for sales and service, International Plaza and Bay Street Mall might be a good location. It might be possible to do some shopping while waiting for your car to be serviced. Needless to say there is lots of foot traffic at the mall to attract sales as well. Its not far from major highways to facilitate ranger service.

    Good suggestion Larry. BTW, every time I go to the there I ask about charging stations.....if others would do the same thing, they might install one or two.

    P.S. The Capital Grille has an incredible Lobster Burger....

    Tesla at International Plaza, Tampa or Benderson Mall, Sarasota

    International Plaza in Tampa is centrally located and would be great for both sales and service. When Benderson Town Center here in Sarasota opens its expanded upscale lifestyle mall at University and I-75 that would make us central between Tampa and Naples. Not too shabby a location either!

    Hi Ken,

    Welcome to the forums.

    Sarasota certainly would work for me.

    Welcome Ken.

    @Everyone. Ken is working on installing chargepoints in SW Florida, so the more referals we can give him the better it is for all EV owners.

    I agree that International Plaza would be a great choice for a store for the reasons stated above. In addition, it is just next to Tampa International Airport so could be a great place for anyone not in driving distance of a store to fly to for a test drive . However, it seems that Tesla is "only" planning a service center for this area right now.

    Its a great location for a store but I think a service center should be located away from a mall type setting.

    South Florida has the store in Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area. Seems the Orlando area may be more centrally located. Tampa area would be good also, but putting it further south than Tampa would not be as "centrally located" in Florida - especially since I do not see them putting more than 2 stores in Florida anytime soon.
