Tesla Going To Court In Texas?

Tesla, the electric-car manufacturer, may go to federal court in Texas as well as five other states where it is barred from making direct sales.

The Wall Street Journal reported, the California company hopes that a combination of state legislation and other actions will eventually allow it to sell in the six states. If this fails they may go to federal court.

The six states where Tesla is banned from direct sales to customers – Arizona, Connecticut, Michigan, Texas, Utah and West Virginia – account for about 18 percent of the U.S. new-vehicle market.

Although the company did direct sales in Georgia, Maryland and New Jersey last year, Texas again denied them.

“Tesla is committed to not being foreclosed from operating in the states it desires to operate in, and all options are on the table,” Todd Maron, Tesla’s chief counsel, told The Journal.

Texas requires manufacturers to partner with dealerships.
