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.
