Elon Musk might set up a Tesla store in his birth country soon. Replying to a South African’s question on Twitter about when he would open a store in South Africa, Musk tweeted, “Probably end of next year”.
While various countries including the U.S., China, Australia and Germany already have Tesla stores, Africa does not have any. Perhaps lower average incomes have deemed it a relatively small market for electric cars. But that notion could potentially change, if Musk’s recent reply on Twitter is of any indication. Musk was born in South Africa.
