As silent as one of its engines, a Tesla store and service center opened in Las Vegas this year.

In June, the electric car manufacturer launched a service center at 6260 Badura Ave., near Jones Boulevard and the Las Vegas Beltway. In November a sales floor was added.

“We noticed a lot of people coming through the door when it was just a service center,” said Tesla spokeswoman Alexis Georgeson, who said public interest encouraged the company to offer sales.

Tesla is led by CEO Elon Musk, a co-founder of PayPal who also heads Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX, a spacecraft development company responsible for the first liquid-fuel rocket to reach orbit.

Musk is the principal shareholder of SolarCity, a solar-panel installation and maintenance company, which opened a Las Vegas office in August.
