Tesla approved to open retail outlet in VA, off Leesburg Pike
Tesla has been approved to open its own new vehicle retail facility, without a dealer, at a property off Leesburg Pike in Tysons Corner by next March.
In fulfillment of an arrangement worked out a year ago with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, with VADAês involvement, this direct-sale outlet will be the only one Tesla is permitted to operate in the Commonwealth. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved the developerês application for the store.
Many of the dealerships that had been in Tysons for decades have moved out to Chantilly Auto Park, as the opening of the Silver Line has caused property values along Leesburg Pike to skyrocket. The Tesla outlet will be near the Spring Hill station of the Silver Line.
Tesla has a small storefront on K Street in NW DC, where customers can look at the models on display but cannot buy cars.Download Bulletin PDF
