Hamilton is one step closer to being the home of the largest Tesla sales and service centre in Canada.
The city’s adjustment committee voted unanimously in favour of moving the proposed project forward: one which would see a 60,000 square foot facility for retail and servicing of Tesla’s iconic electric vehicles.
