Businessman and Tesla CEO Elon Musk seemed to tip the company’s plans for an electric car service center in Knoxville with a tweet on Tuesday. 

The electric car company CEO responded to a Twitter user who responded to an official Tesla tweet saying, “We really need a service center in Knoxville. Tesla is losing a lot of money towing our cars to Atlanta or Nashville”.

“We’re opening a lot of Tesla service centers next year, including Knoxville. Tesla will post upcoming city opening map this week.” Musk wrote. 

Tesla’s currently has just one service center in Tennessee, located in Nashville. Other nearby Tesla service centers include Charlotte, North Carolina and three in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
