Across the street from the Tesla Motors Chicago store you will find a parking lot next to a automotive repair service garage for gasoline vehicles. The day I visited you could find a Tesla Ranger’s van & a Model S parked in this location.
During my 2010 visit for the public grand opening of this location – I don’t recall anything Tesla related being parked there. What did catch my eye was a big advertisement for Yahoo. On my revisit a few weeks ago the Yahoo sign looked to be gone.
In 2010 while taking my one and only ride in a Tesla Roadster I joked with the sales person that Roadsters are Toyota Prius magnets. Because it seemed like all around us were nothing put Prius during our quick trip. I asked if he thought the Prius owners realized they were driving next to a real electric car.
I couldn’t help but smile when I started recording I see a Toyota Prius right in front of the fossil fuel garage – just a few feet away from the Model S. I think the Prius might belong to a car sharing service. It might be I-GO Car Sharing Chicago.
In the unlikely event that you would have a problem with your Tesla Roadster or Model S – Tesla Rangers are who would come to give you roadside assistance.
Disclaimer – I am a very minor Tesla Motors stock owner. Unfortunately I didn’t have near the amount of money I wanted to invest in this company. But I do own a few shares.
In 2010 during the Tesla Motors public Grand Opening event – you would have seen this advertisement when looking across the street to this location.
