Looks like Tesla is making another push to open a showroom (and service center?) in Rhode Island, this time at a location across from the Warwick Mall. A licensing hearing is scheduled for October 9th.

Per the Providence Journal:

The state Motor Vehicle Dealers License and Hearing Board earlier this month approved Tesla’s application to sell vehicles from a building on Bald Hill Road, across the street from the Warwick Mall.

The new location is several miles north of the 870 Quaker Lane building that Tesla received a license for late last year. The California company never reached a lease agreement with the owner of that former Hyundai dealership.

The license is subject to another state site inspection and Tesla getting a local dealers permit from Warwick. The company has a Warwick licensing hearing scheduled Oct. 9.
