You’ll Be Able to Buy a Tesla in Connecticut Right There, Soon
Hey high rollers of the Northeast, you really want to ball? How about driving away from the casino with a brand-new Tesla to carry your fat wallet away? It's going to be possible at Mohegan Sun soon.
Connecticut's National Treasure Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville has just announced that they are in the process of opening up the very first Tesla Sales & Delivery Center in Connecticut to operate on Sovereign Tribal land. The Tesla EV showroom is slated to open sometime in the Fall of 2023, and will be located across from Todd English's Tuscany Restaurant in the Shops at Mohegan Sun. Vehicle delivery will take place at the Sky Tower Valet, and they will be offering test drives around the resort, and will also be accepting Mohegan Sun's loyalty program Momentum points towards the purchase of a vehicle.
Mohegan Sun has also announced that this partnership with Tesla will breed into it's workforce development program, and provide opportunities to learn skills that may pave the way to more Musk money.
This is great news for Tesla and Mohegan Sun, under Connecticut law, vehivcles can only be purchased from independent car dealers, a business practice soundly rejected by Tesla. Tesla does operate it's own dealership, there's one one of them in Connecticut, it's in Milford at 881 Boston Post Road.
If only my parents were still around, they spent every weekend at mohegan, laughing and smoking their cigs, building up those points. I can just picture them cruising along Rt. 2 in a new Model 3.
