Amato’s Auto Body is proud to announce that they have received their Factory Certification from Tesla Motors!
Tesla Motors was founded in 2003 with the vision of emulating consumer electronics’ products and enter into the automotive industry with a high end line of automobiles. Their focus on all electric vehicles has turned out to be extremely successful starting back in 2008 when they released the Tesla Roadster. By receiving such good feedback with the roadster, they continued onto the current Tesla Model S Sedan. Coming out of 2013, they have been able to produce over 25,000 Model S Sedans in the US and receiving the #3 highest sold all electric vehicle in the states. Moving into 2014, there is a new Model X SUV that is planned on being released and once again changing the game.
The Tesla, being such a high end and technologically advanced vehicle, inherently requires special care and qualifications to service and repair. There are only 16 Tesla stores in the US and even less Factory Certified Repair Centers. Amato’s Auto Body has 10 Factory certifications ranging from Audi to Porsche and have just received their certification from Tesla. There is no other auto body repair shop more qualified in San Diego to carry the Tesla Certification.
Among many Auto Body Shops in San Diego, Amato’s was the only shop to move forward with Tesla. There must be a certain amount of high level technicians that receive special training from Tesla in each certified shop. This training can span from a few weeks to as long as a month reviewing all of the special features that go along with the technologically advanced vehicles. Along with the specialized training, the shop must also invest in Tesla Specialized Equipment. Most of this specialized equipment is made especially for Tesla to accommodate the aluminum chassis and body panels. Another very special requirement from Tesla is the need of having an entire building constructed of strictly aluminum used only for Tesla repairs.
After meeting all of the requirements, Tesla has given Amato’s Auto Body their Factory Certification! Amato’s is your #1 source for Factory Tesla Repairs in Southern California. If you may have any questions or would like to request an estimate, please give us a call.
