Elon Musk: Tesla will be opening its own ‘body shops’ by June-end
In an announcement made during Tesla’s 2018 shareholder meeting held recently, CEO Elon Musk said that Tesla Motors is set to open the first of its own ‘body shops’ by the end of June 2018.
Musk’s announcement underscored the ongoing efforts by Tesla to open ‘body shops’ for its electric vehicles (EVs), in order to resolve the persistent issues related to excessive wait times experienced by Tesla owners at body shops after their vehicles get hit in accidents.
In announcing that the first of the ‘Tesla body shops’ is scheduled for opening by June-end, Musk also revealed that same-day repairs of Tesla EVs may potentially be offered at the automaker’s own body shops.
With regard to the locations of the first of Tesla’s body shops to be opened by the end of June, Musk said at the shareholder meeting that these shops are initially being opened in the top ten metro areas.
At Tesla’s own body shops, the repairs of accident-damaged Tesla EVs will be completed much faster as compared to the time taken for repairs at third-party repair shops. With the ‘Tesla body shops’ to be annexed to the automaker’s existing service centers, some components of Tesla EVs will apparently be pre-stocked at these body shops to enable them to offer faster repairs.
