    Why Did New Jersey Ban the Sale of Tesla Electric Cars?

    New Jersey is set to ban the sale of Tesla automobiles in its state starting April 1.

    Surprisingly, New Jersey is not the first. Colorado, Texas, Arizona, and Virginia have all prohibited
    Tesla from selling cars in their states.

    The Tesla is universally acknowledged by car experts to be one of the best cars ever made. It was
    awarded the “Car of the Year” by Motor Trend magazine.

    o why are states blocking consumers from buying them? Simple… Tesla is a threat to the current car
    dealership model. Steve Chapman explains: http://preservefreedom.org/new-jersey-bans-the-

    Tesla Wins Back The Right To Sell Direct To Consumers In New Jersey
    Posted yesterday

    Electric car company Tesla can now once again sell cars direct to consumers in New Jersey (via Engadget), after a ban earlier this year based on an old (and mostly irrelevant in this case) law enabled Governor Chris Christie to bow to pressure from local auto dealers to get sales of Elon Musk’s magical future cars put on hold.

    A new bill passed by the New Jersey Assembly Consumer Affairs Committee unanimously allows Tesla to start selling cars through its two existing dealers in New Jersey, and gives them permission to open up to two more. The bill applies to all zero-emission vehicle makers, giving them the right to open up to four showrooms in New Jersey.

    Texas, Arizona Beg Tesla To Build Factories While Banning It From Selling Cars
    Lawmakers in two states where Tesla can’t sell its cars are hoping the company will bring them thousands of jobs anyway.

    Texas and Arizona are each competing to be the future home of a new lithium-ion battery factory that Tesla estimates could create 6,500 jobs. These states are business-friendly, their representatives claim.

    But neither state has been very friendly to Tesla: Both say Tesla can't sell cars there without using independent car dealers. New Jersey joined them last week, with a new rule cutting Tesla out of that state's huge luxury-car market. Nevada and New Mexico, which are also in the running to host the new plant, called a "Gigafactory," don't have such rules.
    That's not stopping Arizona and Texas from trying to woo Tesla anyway: All nine of Arizona's U.S. representatives wrote a letter to Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Tuesday, urging him to build the new factory in that state. The mayors of Tucson and Mesa, Arizona, have made the same pitch. Texas state representative Jason Villaba wrote Musk earlier this month trying to lure him to that state.

    In his letter, first reported by the Texas Tribune, Villaba noted that Texas has no personal or corporate income tax and is a “right-to-work” state (no unions allowed, in other words). The Arizona congressmen wrote that their state is "one of the most business-friendly" in the nation.
