Electric Vehicle automaker Tesla has scored some major victories in the last week toward selling their vehicles directly to consumers. Earlier this month, the New Jersey Assembly Consumer Affairs Committee voted unanimously to allow Tesla to sell vehicles at four company owned stores in the state. Earlier this week, New Jersey’s General Assembly passed a bill that would make that plan a reality. Next step for the bill is the state Senate and finally Governor Chris Christie to sign it into a law.
In New York, Tesla also recorded another victory this week when Governor Andrew Cuomo signed pro-Tesla legislation into law. This legislation not only allows Tesla to keep its five company-owned stores, but also allows for “additional Tesla retail locations be established under a strengthened dealer franchise law.” “New York’s franchised auto dealers and manufacturers as well as innovative companies like Tesla are critical to our state’s economy. This bill ensures that both sides will thrive and be able to grow the market for cutting edge zero emission vehicles,” Governor Cuomo commented.
