Tesla Inc. will continue to have stores and even add stores, provided such stores have “high foot traffic,” Chief Executive Elon Musk said in a call with analysts after Tesla reported first-quarter results late Wednesday. Conversely, it will close stores that have low foot traffic, he said. Customers will still order vehicles online, and stores will be “essentially information centers,” where people would buy Tesla merchandise, test-drive cars, and get more information about the vehicles, Musk said.
