When dealership in Las Vegas?

Sorry about the Pigeon English in the subject line. Does anyone know who the Las Vegas dealership will be, and when/where it will open. We took delivery of our Passion in Riverside CA, since that was the closest dealer. We were told there that it'd be the Fletcher Jones dealership here in Las Vegas, but were later told it would be the Tobin Bentley dealership.

Where would we look to find out?

Welcome to our "little" world! Not holding my breath about our dealership, tho. Supposedly, the Las Vegas dealer will be open in a matter of weeks and will be associated with Towbin Hummer. (no kidding) However, there have been two or three dealer false starts already, so I wouldn't book a service appointment just yet. In the meantime, we have a budding smart group/club and had our first meet-up just a few weeks ago. There are pictures here somewhere. Our fearless leader - flywithsean - has even set up a Las Vegas web page:

Best to PM Sean with your contact info so we can add to our numbers at the next get-together.

OK I just added a comment on your blog. I live in Ohio, but my son lives in LV. If you are having a meet sometime when we come out to visit, could I come and maybe bring my grandkids and show them the cars? They haven't gotten to see mine and they have seen others and thought it was "cute." I was out there on father's day weekend and looked over the divider on 95 going south. On the other side was a mater/silver going north. How fun!

[strike]Too Funny! The Las Vegas Smart dealership is Towbin Motorcars, 2550 S Jones...AKA the Rolls Royce and Bentley dealership. Will I be allowed in with my Birkenstocks?[/strike]

Edited to add: We now know the location is the Towbin Hummer dealership at 5550 W Sahara, east of the Jones/Sahara intersection. Smartusa.com is still showing 2550 S Jones.

Interesting. I inquired there about a year ago and they said they would be the dealer. Four - six months later they denied everything. At our meet-up a few weeks ago,the Hummer dealership was the hot rumor. Too bad I have to work tomorrow. May try and get out that way next week. Thanks for the info.

I got the address from the configuration website. I just called Towbin Motorcars and asked for "Smart Sales"...after a pregnant pause the operator forwarded my call...the next operator answered "Towbin Hummer", again, I asked for "Smart Sales" and was directed to a mailbox for "Towbin executive offices." I don't know what this all means, I wanted to confirm SmartCenter Las Vegas was open, and visit tomorrow.

I made a ground-truthing exercise, today, and found no signs of Smart Cars anywhere near Jones and Sahara. I phoned Towbin, again, and was told the SmartCarCenter will be at the Hummer Dealership and will open really soon. They wanted my contact info and reznumber.
