Natick amped for electric-car dealership

The MetroWest Daily News reports Natick selectmen approved a plan by Tesla Motors to open its first Massachusetts showroom for its battery-powered cars at the Natick Mall. Company officials said they chose Natick because its residents are particularly discerning - and have lots of disposable cash.

Tesla's line has been doing much better than Fisker's from what I've seen, and I wouldn't be too surprised to start seeing the Model X around here next year. Having the nearest service center being in NYC was definitely a problem - while Tesla will drive out to your location for free to do service updates and handle other smaller issues, there's an extra cost for going more than I think 75 miles from the service center itself.

I like the look of the gullwing SUV. I can see it fitting in with a lot of the suburbanites around here. I'd like to see it take off.

Natick courts businesses, bringing customers, jobs, and tax revenue to that area. This, in turn, helps funds schools and services that are important quality-of-life factors for lower-income households.

Compare that with Jamaica Plain's own JPNC.

I'll bet you can't wait until Natick opens that blacksmith store, so that you won't have to grind your axe all the time.

FAR too blue-collar. How about a "Custom Crafted Wrought Iron Sundries Boutique" instead?

Clearly, I am no Natick resident, or I would have never let that through. Fixed now.

Sorry...I used up all my electricity jokes on the NStar story last week, and I'm only capable of making 10 electricity puns in one trip without a recharge.
