According to a report by Tesla North, Tesla is back on the hunt for a service centre location in Victoria, B.C. as the company has now cancelled its announced purchase of the former Volvo dealership at the corner of Douglas and Hillside.
The electric carmaker has been looking for a location for a new service center in Victoria since September last year and has had its eyes set on a former Volvo dealership owned by B.C. billionaire, Jimmy Pattison, but now, that seems to have changed.
According to the Victoria EV Association “Tesla has cancelled their announced purchase of the former Volvo dealership at the corner of Douglas and Hillside as their Vancouver Island sales and service location. A search for a new location is underway. No reason was provided for the change.”
Tesla has also been posting jobs seeking Mobile Service Technicians in Victoria in the new year, signalling a launch was in the works.
Nonetheless, a Tesla service center is still coming to Victoria, although it won’t be at the site of the former Volvo dealership.
