After losing its lawsuit against Tesla, New York auto dealers are backing a bill submitted to the state’s legislature in hopes to block direct car sales for Tesla.
According to the American automaker, the bill would essentially put Tesla out of business in New York, meaning all the jobs and New York-based suppliers for Tesla would take a hit. Worst, New York residents wouldn’t even have the opportunity to get their hands on a Tesla vehicle, which is not just bad for the automaker, but for the marketplace and its consumers.
Things have been heating up between Tesla and in various states, as auto dealers around the nation are trying to block Tesla’s direct sales. The American automaker made it clear that “selling through intermediaries at this stage of the company will not work.” Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to ask Tesla fans to make a call to the New York state senator to help block the bill.
