New showroom will offer new job opportunities to people and boost business simultaneously.
Tesla Motors is about to expand its distribution network in the U.S. The residents of Derby Street Shoppes would soon find Tesla’s sixth upscale vehicle dealership in their hometown as the electric vehicle maker would establish its luxurious vehicle showroom in the region on February 12, 2015.
On Wednesday, Hingham retail center and the automaker jointly announced the date for opening the showroom. Tesla’s executives were expecting that the facility would be ready after Christmas holiday, but town zoning approvals and hearings led to the delay.
Derby Street will become the electric carmaker’s fourth location in Boston-area, along with Dedham, Natick and the Prudential Center in downtown Boston. Tesla’s facility will occupy the former White’s Bakery space on the Whole Foods Market side of Derby Street Shoppes. The dealership of the company will run a charging facility at the parking one end of lot.
With the arrival of Tesla, all six of the upscale dealerships will be located within 1 mile away from each other, off two exits from stretch of Route 3. Herb Chambers has a Lexus dealer on the Derby Street’s other side located near Best Chevrolet, which has been established there for a very long time.
