Tesla will open its largest service centre in Germany as it mounts up Model 3 deliveries across Europe.
The decision comes just weeks after Tesla unveiled a plan to build a factory near Berlin.
The site of the new service centre south of Hanover, about an hour’s drive from VW’s headquarters in Wolfsburg, covers 3,000 square meters (32,290 square feet), Tesla said.
The company has moved local staff from a previous location in downtown Hanover and will also recruit more people.
Tesla’s sales expansion in Europe had been overshadowed by complaints about poor quality and customer service in Germany.
Europe’s largest economy recently embarked on a fresh government-backed push to promote a shift toward electric cars after previous efforts fell short of expectations.
Success in Germany is critical to Tesla’s global expansion strategy.
The company will construct a plant near Berlin after completing a huge factory in Shanghai to boost its presence in China, the world’s largest electric-car market.
