Tesla sells its award-winning electric vehicles directly to consumers rather than going through the traditional dealer franchise system. Currently, Tesla sells in over twenty states in the U.S. and in Washington D.C. Only five states prohibit Tesla from selling direct to consumers. Connecticut is one of those five states. Our neighboring states of New York and Massachusetts have sold over 1,000 vehicles to Connecticut residents. Senate Bill 3 preserves the protections that dealers have from the manufacturers, while at the same time allowing a manufacturer of electric vehicles WITHOUT dealers to sell directly to consumers. Tesla is NOT seeking a loophole as they have never franchised in Connecticut or anywhere else in the world. Opening stores in Connecticut is a high priority of Tesla’s, each store creates 15-20 jobs. At a time when businesses are leaving Connecticut every day, Tesla wants to come and invest in our state. As a consumer of this product, please don't continue to put me at a disadvantage simply because the state has neglected to update their archaic franchise laws, which exclude a great American car company like Tesla to operate. I urge you to support SB 3. In doing so you are supporting jobs and the freedom to buy electric vehicles.
