Tesla approved for first full-service location in New Jersey

 

Side note – Last week also a deal with NJ’s neighboring state, Pennsylvania, has limited the EV maker to five stores there.

It was a compromise between Tesla and a move by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, which represents 12 automakers but not Tesla.

Meanwhile, in China, a known protestor of Tesla took a wrench to his own Model S’ windshield. Had Tesla racked up miles on it prior to delivery? Unclear is why he said “I feel like I just married a woman who has been married before” in his protest of Tesla’s “arrogance” in damaging his own car.

And as for the Garden State, Tesla is still awaiting what is hoped to be a favorable ruling by the New Jersey State Senate to resume unfettered sales, but for now it’s been OK’d for New Jersey’s first all-in-one sales, service, and Supercharging location in Paramus, N.J.

On Thursday, the Paramus Zoning Board of Adjustment gave the green light to the electric car maker to open a 27,000-square-foot service center and new Tesla store with Supercharging and other charging infrastructure.

The approval flies in the face of a March Motor Vehicle Commission ruling barring such facilities, and the law against it is still on the books, but on June 16 the state’s assembly voted 77-0 in favor of a bill now needing approval by the senate and governor.

Since April Tesla Motors has had its two stores – Garden State Plaza and Short Hills – relegated to “gallery” status to show and educate but with strict rules against selling cars. It also has a Supercharger facility in Hamilton Township.

Tesla says it has 807 Tesla owners now within a 25-mile radius of the proposed North Jersey site on Route 17 where it intends to convert the former Sixth Avenue Electronics Store.

Design Manager for Tesla, Christy Ortins told NorthJersey.com that Paramus was chosen as Tesla’s nearby Garden State Plaza location proves there are a lot more customers waiting to be found in the region.

“There seems to be quite a market here where there are people who are forward-looking” she said of the relatively affluent area which serves in part as a bedroom community for New York.

The location along Route 17 is already “becoming a magnet for luxury car brands” as North Jersey household incomes include some that top the charts nationwide.

Tesla’s Route 17 facility aims to have three Superchargers, seven conventional chargers open seven days a week, and the sales and service facility are to be open all days except Sunday.

    Great news! When Tesla gets their more affordable models out, and people realize they can drive around on ~$1.00/gallon fuel, or even free, other car dealers will be begging their franchisors for more electric offerings.

    I have travelled and stayed in New Jersey a few times, and I am glad that the Tesla showroom will open. I still cannot believe that the State will allow the sale of imports that suck money from American buyers, yet will not support an true American product.

    Meanwhile, we have no news about the 2015 Chevy Spark EV, after the first year of the 2014 model has passed. GM is letting the competition build its market and will fall behind when the import EVs arrive in August by the thousands.

    He was careful to only damage the windshield. It was more of a publicity stunt than anything else.

    This article is good news. I’ve always sided with Tesla and the consumer on this issue.

    Tesla has gone way beyond the 1,000 square foot requirement proposed last year on page 10:

    http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/pdf/About/9b_Licensing_Service_Proposed_Amendments_August_2013.pdf

    Good to see the all-in-one location. Reminds me of the early Tesla Motors locations in Westwood and Newport Beach that were also combined sales and service. Those locations were very impressive, but small compared with their current service centers.

    I like this comment:

    Tesla suggested Mr. Yu take delivery of one of its showroom display cars or he wait for another month to get a new car from the U.S. Mr. Yu said neither of the Tesla proposals satisfied him and driving a display car is just not the same.

    “I feel like I just married a woman who has been married before,” he said.

    I have bought store display items many times. I get a large discount but with the same new warranty. If Tesla sold me a showroom display Model S with a $25,000 discount, I will take it!

    Now that the subject of Tesla comes up, it takes me back to Friday’s article on the electric Benz. If the Benz’s “drivetrain” was engineered by Tesla, does that mean that it is powered by a bunch of cell phone batteries soldered together like a Model S?

    If so, another excellent reason not to buy one IMHO. The battery in a Spark is about 100 times more sophisticated if you ask me.

    Well yeah, but there are lots of pretty girls, and many with more brains and talent than the aforementioned, and they don’t become international celebrities.

    Not that it’s an original thought, but I’m just saying that the whole package somehow doesn’t rise to the level of international celebrityhood IMHO. So it just shows the power of inspired press agentry and “good ink’.

    Of course V. Stiviano didn’t last that long, and I’m sure that Mr. Yu won’t either. But I bet that the “T-word” sticks in a few more folks’ minds, hahaha.

    Is this ironic? We as a nation are developing more and more terrifying weapons, including ships to do, among other things, protect oil rights, and such …

    If we’re so good at creating electrified transportation, why don’t we just do that — for our cars? Like we really mean it?

    In any event, here’s the Navy’s new and largest destroyer which may in time get a rail gun – its the Navy’s first electric powered ship since escort ships in the 40s and uses modified Rolls-Royce Trent 800 engines as gensets.

    “In this instance, the turbines themselves won’t propel the ship, but they’ll provide electricity for the ship’s generators, which will generate 78 Megawatts of power – enough electricity for 10,000 homes.”

    Normally these engines are built for the Boeing 777-200, 777-200LR and 777-300. On planes, each Trent 800 provides 75,000-95,000 pounds of thrust.

    If it were Elon I’d give the guy his money back and tell him to never darken my doorway again. But’s that why I’m not a business person.

    The first major US Navy ships to use electric propulsion were the battle cruisers Lexington and Saratoga which became the aircraft carriers of the same name. And were used more than once to provide shore power to places (I think Portland, OR and Honolulu, HI) when their fixed power plants failed for one reason or another.

    I decline to say anything about Kim Kardashian’s appearance until she steps out of the body suit that makes her look like she does.

    Gee, I married a woman who was married before and we have been married for 32 years.

    To me the worst form of welfare in this country is paying people to build all the war material the DoD does not want and that we end up giving to both sides of a conflict to kill each other so they can both hate us.

    “GM Unviels compensation plan”

    General Motors Co. GM +0.76% ‘s compensation plan for victims of 2.6 million defective small cars would offer payments for any accidents in which the air bags in the cars failed to deploy, and offer bigger payouts to victims who accepted out-of-court settlements before the auto maker recalled the vehicles.

    “Under the program, the nation’s largest auto maker would provide compensation checks ranging from $20,000 to several million dollars to any driver, passenger, pedestrian or occupant of another vehicle who can show they were hurt in a crash involving cars GM recalled this year for faulty ignition switches.

    Compensation expert Kenneth Feinberg unveiled a broad settlement plan that will compensate victims in accidents involving General Motors vehicles with defective ignition switches. Joe White joins MoneyBeat. Photo: Getty Images.

    I spoke to a friend at a local Chevy dealer today. He said that they are getting overwhelmed by all of the “campaigns”. He said that they do get reimbursed by GM for the work, but the margins are very thin and that they would much prefer to be doing their regular service work.

    Poor Ms. Barra is obviously facing a massive challenge. I wonder if she ever regrets that she left the engineering department. “Be careful what you ask for, you might get it.”

    In discussing the failure of the deployment of the airbags of any
    vehicle, it it not usually a matter of rprogramming whatsoever.
    Primarily, engineers do not know REALLY how the analog system
    malfunctions.
    The absolute solutions can’t be published here due to SAFETY reasons
    as arrogance would make for more danger, not less.
    Arrogance in disbelief sysems is not worth tolerating.

    For FIVE YEARS the source of the answer to this has been
    kindly listed on THE STATE OF TEXAS DPS website.
    I have been told that “The other States want it [my Seminar
    Number 1].”
    Yet there isno way to compensate me to perform
    responsible and thorough quality controlled distribution.

    As was commented here the other day:
    Technicians used to have influence in corporate structure
    but nowaday, they have none.

    It sure shows.

    It is easy to predict how soon a shop will fail when the new
    owners rely upon a tool truck driver for diagnostic help.

    PSSST!!!
    He’s A TRUCK DRIVER!!!

    I really lke Mrs. Barra. She has a respectful dignity about
    her which she conveys to everyone.
    Yes, she has a set of extreme responsibilities for the recalls.

    The recall workload in the service bays can be mostly offset
    on most vehicles with both diagnostic time savings and with
    the modest income from many of the vehicles with our new
    process, which quickly prove within 30 seconds the small root causes for minor but important problems that are always the next right things to do anyway.
    Owners also immediately see and feel positve differences in
    functions which they themselves know best, also anyway.

    Engineers who also have been techs in our classes do not like anything that does not represent what they feel is a scholastic complexity (their historically vested economics) as a controllable process.

    As they had bought into years of electrical engineering,
    yet here is this technician instructor who, if I may say so,
    has formulas structured down to first grade arithmetic that answer *directly*, questions engineers and entire departments can not solve with conventional wisdom.

    First grade arithmetic formulations tend to undo his thunder
    when these formulations assert all manner of renewed profitability from fixing the right first-things-first.

    This renewed profitability and customer satisfaction are applicable universally to ALL automotive business models
    at all levels of ALL automotive technologies.

    A compact hidden analog universe is opened up, so if an engineer is not threatened or jealous of it, he or she would be excited by it. The techs I certify in it are always excited and
    impressed with it.

    The question remaining is: Is anyone allowed to believe that
    or do that anymore?

    Maybe he was embarrassed because Tesla was in deep trouble but yeah who on earth wants to wreck there own beautiful Sports EV.

    I sure wouldn’t!

    Unless he’s either a Multi million or billionaire who can afford hundreds or thousands of Model S’s?

    Also I’m glad that Mr. Musk got to open some new direct sale stores and a new plant but I just don’t get it why some States just don’t want him to run his own buisnes in other States?

    Also I’ll agree with comment #1 if the big American auto companies don’t listen I hope they will when Mr.Musk releases the Model X and as well that mysterious pick up truck of his as I hope these two new vehicles will wake up both the general public and especially the auto companies.

    The Future Is Electric Not Hydrogen.

    Jeff Cobb: If we’re so good at creating electrified transportation, why don’t we just do that — for our cars? Like we really mean it?

    But then how will the oil industry make trillions in profits over the next few decades?

    I have no doubt that he would have if he had lived through 2 full terms.

    A Tesla service station? So they can do what, change the tires and the wiper blades?

    Tesla should advertise their service station workers like the Maytag man – nothing to do all day long since the solid state technology isn’t breaking.
