Tesla adds 17 more stores to its Model 3 display fleet
US electric vehicle maker Tesla Motors has announced that it is adding 17 more stores to its Model 3 display fleet. The automaker also said that a further expansion of the display fleet is on the cards in the near future.
With the Model 3 display fleet already having been expanded by Tesla Motors to 35 stores this week, the latest announcement about the addition of 17 more stores -- 7 of them in California -- implies that the automaker’s new electric car will now be on display at more than 50 locations. In addition, Tesla has also listed 6 more stores as “coming soon” to the Model 3 display fleet.
Tesla has gradually been bringing Model 3 for display at its retail locations, as it has amassed more than 450,000 reservations for the electric car.

Tesla’s ongoing efforts to expand the Model 3 display fleet is in accordance with a statement made by CEO Elon Musk at the shareholder meeting earlier in June.
