Mississippi welcomed its first Tesla store with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. 

WJTV reported Tesla opened its first “dealership” in Brandon, MS, and those attending the ceremony were able to test drive some of the vehicles.


The Mississippi Tesla store is a 25,000-square foot building Mayor Butch Lee said wasn’t a typical dealership.


“This is not a typical dealership. This is a build it and bring it to the consumer," Lee said.


The new store used to be Courthouse Fitness and a physical rehabilitation center for UMMC. Local developer RCI, LLC, and Trihelm Properties have been working together to bring Tesla to Brandon.


In May, it was noted this would be for a Tesla store, making it the first of its kind for Mississippi. The city of Brandon shared a short message of welcome To Tesla on its Facebook page.


In the photo above, members of the local community got to see the Tesla Model X do its Chrismas carol dance. For Brandon, Tesla brought Christmas in July.
