Drive Wire: Tesla Will Sell Cars At Nordstrom

Have you ever gone to the mall to buy jeans and walked out with a new car? Neither have we but now you can. Tesla is partnering with fancy department store chain Nordstrom to sell their cars, basically because Tesla hates dealerships almost as much as car buyers do. The first site will be at an LA Nordstrom acting somewhat as a test run, and if the partnership works out, Tesla will extend the program through other Nordstrom locations. For now, Tesla says the 400-square-foot store will feature test drives of the Model X on site. Which we assume means through the mall. If that’s the case, sign us up.
