Tesla is selling more and more vehicles and is constantly expanding its Supercharger network. Plus, more electric cars mean more work for their own workshops — and with a new location in the far east of Germany, Tesla is trying to keep pace with this development. The new center for sales, distribution and repair in Dresden is a former Infiniti dealership on the western edge of the city.
At the moment there are only 21 Tesla workshops

There are no service centers in Kassel, Leipzig, Halle or Magdeburg which is why customers have to travel long distances when mobile ranger service doesn’t solve any problems. a look at location map Tesla reveals that in Germany, including the newly opened one in the Saxon capital, there are 20 service centers that can be construed as full-fledged workshops.
Further locations are clearly not planned in the near future. On the Tesla map, there is currently only one additional service center for Germany in Freiburg. An opening date is not specified. Theoretically, however, this information is subject to change at any time – it only applies to Until Tesla Updates ThemWhich usually happens once a quarter. At the moment there are still jobs for the new center on Tesla’s recruitment pages in Dresden, but there are no indications that personnel are being sought for the new German workshops.
VW with 950 dealers in Germany
So it will probably stay with 20 for now and Tesla may soon have 21 German service locations, with one planned in Freiburg. They are complemented by mobile service, in which rangers come to customers’ homes or work with workshop vehicles, but may not do all the work. For comparison: according to Statista, Volkswagen’s German sales network existed From around 950 dealers in 2019Most of which also had workshops.
