Tesla has submitted a proposal to the city's planning committee to open its first auto repair shop in Kansas, where it will offer a variety of services. If the plan is approved, the permit could be discussed at Lenexa City Council in as little as two weeks after that.
The popularity of Tesla vehicles continues to grow and the US remains the manufacturer's largest market. That is why the company is looking to expand services for customers in more locations. The Kansas City Business Journal reports that Tesla, through a company called KANCO LLC, is offering to build a 35,095-square-foot facility on a 3-acre vacant lot at 101st Terrace and Lackman Road. According to the documents, the building will house 21 service bays, two paint booths, two paint bays, two open bays, and two wash bays.
A preliminary plan for a new auto repair facility at 15125 101st Terrace, submitted April 4 to the Lenexa Planning Commission, has been recommended for city staff approval. If it receives a green light from the planning committee, it will go to Lenexa City Council on April 19. The automaker's nearest sales and service center, which opened about three years ago, is located in south Kansas City.
The increase in the number of service centers and auto repair shops directly affects the increase in Tesla customer satisfaction. Due to the fact that the number of manufacturer's cars on the roads increases by hundreds of thousands every year, the provision of an appropriate service is essential, both for Tesla owners and for the company.
