Elon Musk Prepares For First Tesla Supercharger In The Middle East

As reported earlier this month, Tesla has officially expanded towards the Middle East particularly in the United Arab Emirates, and it will be coinciding with Company CEO Elon Musk attending the World Government Summit in Dubai. Further reports have also learned the exact location of Tesla's first store in UAE and that the company is already starting to deploy charging infrastructure, both Superchargers and Destination chargers in the said region.

Tesla In The Middle East

According to Electrek, the company's first ever store in UAE is located on Shiekh Zayed Road, which is one of the busiest roads in Dubai and is currently near the Burj Khalifa metro station. The launch event for tomorrow will be held at the Armani hotel in the Burj Khalifa tower.

A Porsche dealership was also previously located in the same building. Soon-to-be local Tesla owner @belquhood on Twitter sent and shared a few pictures of the new location where Tesla has already installed a banner announcing the store opening for Summer 2017.

Tesla Already Starting Business

Since Tesla is holding a launch event tomorrow in Dubai while the store not opening for another few months, expectations are high that Tesla will start taking official orders for the Model S and X which will be delivered later this year.

The local owners who made the effort of importing Tesla vehicles themselves will not have to wait any longer for Tesla's launch to already be profitable for them since Tesla is already installing chargers within the region. @belquhood told ArabianBusiness that Tesla has already installed a Supercharger station at a popular truck stop between Abu Dhabi and Dubai called "Last Exit."

The First Tesla Supercharger In The Middle East

The said location is not yet listed in Tesla's Supercharger network, but as of the moment, it is apparently already undergoing tests and should eventually become the first ever official Tesla Supercharger in the Middle East. Additionally, Tesla has also started deploying Destination Chargers all around Dubai.
