Tesla Motors, the California-based car company that has been delivering its sporty electric Roadsters to customers since 2008, opened its Washington showroom this week.
The Post's Jonathan O'Connell reports that Tesla is allowing test drives.
According to Tesla, the showroom, located at 1050 K Street, is the company's 16th store worldwide and will also serve as a service center and a regional hub for its technicians.
Tesla plans to hold an open house on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The company's Model S prototype, a four-door sedan it plans to deliver in 2012, will be on display, the company said. The Tesla Roadster sells for more than $100,000, but Tesla estimates the Model S will start at less than $50,000.
