Tesla Motors, the automobile company that designs and manufactures the world’s most advanced electric vehicles and electric powertrains, has secured a lease on a 18,500-square-foot location in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood.

The company will be the sole commercial tenant at the Radius residential development on West 4th Avenue and Fir Street. It will be Tesla’s first retail and service centre in Western Canada.

“The innovative, progressive approach of Tesla Motors is a great fit for Vancouver, a market increasingly dedicated to sustainable practices,” said Dan Clark, the principle for Sitings Realty Limited, in a statement to retail real estate alliance X Team International. “The Radius building in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood is the ideal property for Tesla’s flagship store.”

The Tesla showroom on Robson Street near Hornby Street will remain open. The 1,500-square-foot showroom opened just over a year ago.

There are currently seven Tesla stores in Canada and five Tesla Service Centres, including the recently opened service centre on Powell Street.
