Tesla is returning to Central New York! The electric vehicle maker is bringing its new “Model 3” car to Syracuse’s Museum of Science & Technology (MOST). It will be on-display Tuesday, February 27 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tesla will also have its Model X, Model S and solar products on hand as it attempts to improve access to its sustainable products.
New York State Senator David Valesky (D-Oneida) and Assemblyman Al Stirpe (D-Cicero) are sponsoring legislation which would expand the current cap on Tesla’s retail presence in New York, allowing it to open sales and repair facilities Upstate. It would also open the door for a new job training program at OCC. Degree-earning students in the College’s Automotive Technology major would have the opportunity to participate in a job training program which could lead to employment with Tesla. In December Tesla brought a Model X car to campus for an event aimed at making the public aware of Tesla’s legislative push.
OCC students are welcome to attend the February 27 event at the MOST!
