Tesla sales are back on in the state of New Jersey.
Nearly one year after Tesla was banned from selling directly to consumers in New Jersey, Governor Chris Christie has signed a bill that has reversed the ban.
In June 2014, the New Jersey Assembly Consumer Affairs Committee approved the bill that would allow Tesla to resume sales and today it became new legislation. There are some limits that come with the new law, with the American automaker limited to four direct sale dealerships while Telsa must maintain and operate at least one service center.
Tesla has been fighting an uphill battle in several states with similar issues, including Virginia, Arizona, Texas and Michigan. Legislators in some of those states are looking into passing laws similar to New Jersey, which is the fourth largest market for luxury automobiles.
With this new law, @TeslaMotors can now establish direct sales operations directly to NJ consumers.
