It was just five months ago, when Elon Musk announced that Tesla will be launching in the UAE. Now, Tesla’s first showroom has officially opened its doors in Dubai.
The brand new 17,000 square feet store and service centre is located on Sheikh Zayed Road, right opposite the Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Mall Metro Station.
What’s so great about Tesla cars? They are electric cars, with instant torque, high power and zero emissions – a much more sustainable option compared to gasoline cars. And you can charge your car at home!
The award-winning, all-electric Model S and Model X are both on display at the store, as well as the dual motor Model S rolling chassis. On top of that, the store also features the Tesla design studio, where customers can customize paint colour, roof and wheel options, interiors and more.
With a range of up to 632 km, Tesla’s Model S is designed to be the safest car on the road – going from 0 to 100 kph in just 2.7 seconds.
On the other hand, Model X is the safest, fastest and most capable SUV on the road. With up to 565 km of range on a single charge, it can go from 0 to 100 kph in as quickly as 3.1 seconds.
In addition to the convenient home charging, Tesla has deployed Superchargers and Destination chargers around town, so owners can charge their cars on the go, allowing them to travel wherever and whenever they want.
Superchargers are much faster than Destination chargers, allowing drivers to recharge their vehicles in minutes rather than hours.
Currently, there are two Supercharger sites in the UAE and three more planned by the end of the year, as well as 32 Destination Charging locations, with at least 18 more operational in the next six months.

Prices start from AED281,350 for Model S and AED332,500 for Model X.
