Tesla expands mobile servicing Australia-wide

The US EV-maker is introducing mobile servicing and new facilities in Australia

The long awaited arrival of its Model 3 next year has prompted American electric-car manufacturer Tesla to launch additional facilities in Australia including a mobile service, and a new service and delivery centre in Sydney.

The Alexandria service centre (pictured) will become the primary delivery centre for Tesla in the Harbour City, allowing for greater volume as the growth of electric vehicle ownership continues to grow.

It will also house a Tesla Supercharger station to help extend the charging coverage in metropolitan Sydney coverage.

Tesla has also opened new Supercharger sites in Narooma, New South Wales, with 18 more sites planned around Australia, in additional to the 21 already operating.

There are also 560 Destination Chargers in convenient locations across the country.

Tesla’s new mobile service will be used for the more than 80 percent of repairs that can be carried out  without visiting a service centre.

According to Tesla Australia, owners can have their vehicles serviced wherever they are, at their home or work, quickly and quietly by a Tesla technician.

The program, which is already available in the US and UK, uses a fleet of all-electric Tesla vehicles and does not incur any additional costs than if the work was carried out at a service centre.

Meanwhile, the Model 3 is available for close-up inspection at the Tesla stores at Chadstone, Melbourne, Martin Place, Sydney and Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.
