Teslounge Bucharest has announced the opening of the first independent showroom dedicated to Tesla cars in Romania, a local media report said.

The showroom, which opened its doors today (22 February), covers 250 square metres and is the largest in southeast Europe, the company told romania-insider.com.

The showroom is in the capital city's District 2. 

From March, the Tesla Y model will be available for the first time in Romania.

"I'm glad that we managed, through Teslounge, to bring Tesla cars to the Romanian market and to make it possible to purchase these models directly from the showroom. Our goal is to offer these cars, which are so coveted internationally, to the Romanian public, but also to support the acquisition process. Now, those interested in a Tesla model can come to the showroom and test the cars. We offer our customers assistance throughout the purchase route, from test-drive to service," Vlad Macelaru, marketing and sales director, Teslounge Bucharest, told romania-insider.com.  

Teslounge Bucharest, which imports and sells Tesla models in Romania, is only a partner of the American brand Tesla and has no contractual relationship with EV maker, Economica.net reported. 

Over 2,800 electric cars were registered in Romania in 2020 and over 50 were Tesla models, Teslounge Bucharest said.

Tesla itself opened its first office in Bucharest in early February located in a business centre in District 4. 

Tesla also plans to install Supercharger stations in four Romanian cities this year, with Timisoara. The others are Bucharest, Pitesti, and Sibiu.
