    On the TMC website, under the "Careers" section, there is a Tesla location designated as "US-AZ-Scottsdale-Fashion Square-Store" Looks like the store is going to happen, but can't find anything else in the news since March 24. There was not a listing, however, for a service location that most AZ rez holders would probably prefer. Yeah . . . I know . . . sales will drive the need for service.

    Tesla Motors may bring mini dealership to Scottsdale Fashion Square mall

    The Scottsdale City Council will vote tonight on a proposed luxury electric car dealership at Scottsdale Fashion Square. California-based Tesla Motors wants to locate a mini-dealership at the trendy mall.

    At the May 8 meeting, Scottsdale City Council DID approve Tesla's request for a permit to open a store in Scottsdale Fashion Square.

    More Good News: Within the staff recommendation to the council was a statement referencing a service center - "Delivery of the vehicles will be either to the client's home or the off-site service center."

    Looks like Arizona will have a store AND service center. Nice to see 9 Phoenix area model S pins on the map and a new rez holder in Tucson!

    I'm the one in Tucson with the reservation. For a look at what the plans for the store at Fashion Square Mall look like, take a look at http://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/asset43979.aspx

    Arizona State & Federal EV Incentives might be of interest to Tesla owners, buyers, and enthusiasts.

    Anyone know of a place in Flagstaff to charge and eat lunch? Would be needed for a 60kWh car driving from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon. Recargo only had some battery store in Flagstaff.

    Also, I tried to ask the operator of the Grand Canyon hotels if they have any charging but haven't heard back. Does anyone else have experience charging at the south rim?

    Thanks
