Tesla is trying to make it easier to buy an electric car. The company just opened a new service location along I-580 near South Meadows Parkway in Reno. Customers can make an appointment via the Tesla Mobile App.

Tesla says the service site is able to conduct all repair procedures for Tesla vehicles, including software diagnostics and resolutions, hardware adjustments and parts replacements, among other services. As of right now, the location is an appointment-only center. Besides Tesla's mobile app, customers can go their online account, or call 775.453.7957.

Before, customers had to drive more than 100 miles to get to a service center.

The location used to the former Sports Haus auto repair shop.
