Billionaire business magnate Elon Musk led Tesla will be opening a new centre in the West Midlands.
Tesla has had a presence in the West Midlands since 2016, where it first opened its Solihull store in Touchwood, which Tesla has since outgrown with the need to increase its presence in the area. Further current West Midlands locations include Birmingham Small Heath, and a Tesla Delivery Centre at the NEC. The opening of this new Solihull location indicates Tesla’s continued investment in the area, as part of its mission to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.
The new Tesla Centre will open in Solihull - which will be the third after its Touchwood & NEC centre - to support their digital customer experience around Birmingham and the Midlands. The centre at Blythe Valley Business Park will open on August 19 from 10am to 5pm.
They are opening their doors to the new centre for the first time on August 19 with a range of activities from free ice creams and coffees, to children’s entertainment, in-car gaming, as well as test drives for those interested. The Service Centre will also be open to the public, where guests can learn about electric vehicles as well as get up close to the engineering and batteries that support Tesla’s mission to accelerate the transition to sustainable energy in the UK.
It’s opening a new centre despite all car purchases being done online. You can buy a Tesla from home or choose to place an order in store with fixed pricing. Test drives can be arranged online in advance or organised on the day of a visit to a local Tesla Centre. At the new Solihull centre in the Blythe Valley Business Park, customers can book for test drives as well as service, when required. The site, which can be conveniently accessed from the M42 is approximately 25,000 sqft and has room to service up to 11 cars at once.
All service visits are arranged through the Tesla app, choosing a time and date where convenient to you. With remote information and diagnostics, Tesla can pre-diagnose the issue and, where possible, fix your car with a software update.
If that isn’t possible, the Mobile Service Technician will turn up for your timeslot at your home or work location and, with your permission, can unlock the car remotely. If a service centre appointment is needed, you can arrange a contactless drop off of your car at your chosen location, without having to step inside the Service Centre.
Guests are advised to register their interest here for the open day. The address for the new centre is Tesla Centre - Solihull, B90 8AB, Solihull. The opening hours for sales are Monday to Saturday 10am – 5pm and Sunday 10am – 4pm. For Service, it is open Monday to Friday 8am – 5pm.
