Tesla Wins Approval for Southlake Showroom

The company also plans to install six supercharger stations, the first in Northeast Tarrant County.

Tesla could soon be moving into Southlake Town Square, bringing luxury electric cars and supercharger stations to the affluent city.


The California car maker has confirmed that it’s interested in a spot right across from the Apple Store on Grand Avenue. 

The City Council recently approved the permits and zoning for Tesla to showcase its cars and erect six charging stations in the parking lot, Community Impact News reported. These will be the first supercharger stations for Tesla in Northeast Tarrant County.

Tesla can’t sell cars from the gallery but Tesla is lobbying hard for a change in the state’s dealer franchise law that would allow them to sell in the future.
