When entire states ban your company, you must be on to something positive Tesla
What possible reason could Missouri and other states have for banning a direct to consumer model, than lobbyists from old school auto companies.
Missouri has become the latest state to advance legislation that would ban Tesla’s direct-to-consumer sales model, a move the Palo Alto, Calif., electric car maker attributes to pressure from the auto dealers lobby.
The company said in a blog post that on Wednesday night “anti-Tesla” language was added to a bill, HB 1124, that then passed in the Missouri state Senate. The proposal, which made it through the House last month without that language, could soon come back to the House floor “for a final vote, essentially without debate.”
