New Jersey Governor Chris Christie just signed a law that
will allow Tesla to start selling its vehicles again to residents
of the state.
About a year ago, New Jersey started enforcing a law that required
vehicles to be sold to consumers through dealerships. Tesla
doesn’t play nicely with dealerships. It sells its vehicles
directly to consumers through company-owned showrooms instead of
independently owned and state-certified dealerships. So about a
year ago, Tesla stopped selling cars in New Jersey and the
company’s two showrooms were unable to offer test drives or
discuss sale information.
