Tesla Opens A Service Center In Poland!

July 18th, 2019 by  


My Polish friends (and I) have long been waiting for a Tesla service center in Poland. Thankfully, we now have one. Apparently as a birthday gift for my eldest daughter (who does love Tesla), the company announced via email the other day that a service center opened up in Warsaw.

There’s not much more information that this. The email text is as follows:

As our network of Tesla owners in Poland continues to grow, we’re excited to announce the opening of our Service Center in Warsaw.

The new location provides a convenient way for you to access quick and seamless service. Simply log in to your Tesla app, scroll down to ‘Schedule Service’ and select your preferred appointment date.

We look forward to welcoming you.

There are not a lot of Tesla owners in Poland yet, but I expect there soon will be. This is a very tech focused country and I’m sure there’s a large number of Tesla and SpaceX fans. The cost of living here is lower than in countries to the west (Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, etc.), which means salaries are lower, but the Model 3 Standard Range Plus should be well within the budget of many Polish residents.

Incidentally, I spotted a Model 3 in Poland for the first time on Sunday, and I spotted a Model S on the highway on the day the new service center was announced. Sadly, the Model 3 I spotted had already suffered a bit of damage. It may be making one of the first trips to the Warsaw service center.

The first Tesla Model 3 I’ve spotted in Poland.

The friend of mine, a cofounder of Tesla Shuttle (which I am slo cofounder of), added a little more context to the news:

Maybe interesting is that just now Tesla is entering countries behind the Iron Curtain — recently, a service center was opened in Prague (the Czech Republic), now Warsaw, and next Budapest (Hungary) is planned.

However, still no sales center here.

It would definitely be nice to walk into the first Tesla store in Poland, but as people generally just buy a Tesla online, the store is really just to give customers a touch and taste. Poland is a large country with several big cities far apart, and many people never go to Warsaw. I think it could be smarter for Tesla to have a series of its pop-up stores give test drives in a dozen or so Polish locations. Though, I know opinions on this topic vary a great deal.

If you have collected reports of any more Tesla service center openings in recent weeks, we’d love to hear about them. In the meantime, we’ll just hope that our Polish Tesla doesn’t need to take a trip to the new service center!
