NAMBE, N.M. – The first Tesla sales and service center has opened on Nambé Pueblo as the first Tesla center in New Mexico.

The center took over a building formerly occupied by a casino.

Michelle Lujan Grisham praised the partnership between Nambé Pueblo and Tesla.

New Mexico is one of a few states prohibiting the direct sales of electric vehicles to the public without going through a third-party dealership. However, the law does not apply to tribal land, where the center is located.
