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. Interestingly, most people who have reserved Model 3 have actually not seen the car in real and Tesla can get more reservations as people will be able to see car at display locations.

As a result of the gradual introduction of Model 3 at Tesla’s retail locations, the automaker has been ensuring, over the last few weeks, that the electric car is introduced at a few new stores every week every.

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. Musk had said that Tesla plans to expand the Model 3 display fleet, and also to start building a test drive fleet for the electric car as soon as this month.
