California-based Tesla, which has only one other store in Virginia, will sell and service its battery-powered cars at the new shop in western Henrico County. It also will sell the company’s solar roof panels and its Powerwall rechargeable home battery systems.
Tesla hosted an invitation-only grand opening event at the store attended by Gov. Terry McAuliffe, and other state and local officials, businesspeople and local owners of Tesla automobiles. About 300 people were invited.
