Despite recent battles with the state of New Jersey, Tesla has just received approval to build its first service center in north New Jersey. Last week, the Paramus Zoning Board of Adjustment unanimously approved a 27,000 square foot Tesla service center and showroom on Route 17 in Paramus.

In March the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission prohibited the two existing Tesla stores in the state because Tesla does not use franchises to sell its vehicles, like other automakers. As of April Tesla has stopped selling vehicles in the state, but that is expected to change soon, since the state Assembly voted unanimously on 16 June, 2014 to allow Tesla to again sell its cars directly to consumers.

Until the ruling is reversed, Tesla’s Garden State Place and Short Hills locations are currently acting as a gallery for consumers to look at the company’s vehicles and to learn more about them. According to Tesla, there are about 807 Tesla owners that live within a 25-mile radius of the new service center in Paramus, which will also have three supercharger stations.
