Interviewed on Bloomberg Radio today Gov. Abbott said “Texas has a very robust, very open, very effective automobile sector that seems like it’s working quite well the way that it is. If you’re going to have a breakdown in a car, you need to have a car dealership there to make sure that the vehicle is going to be taken care of. We haven’t seen that from Tesla.” Texas Isnâ€™t Open for Teslaâ€™s Direct Auto Sales, Abbott Says - Bloomberg Business WTF? Has anyone had a vehicle break down and Tesla didn't take care of it? Doesn't he know that Tesla has service centers in Texas, not just galleries? Or if it's the small number of locations he claims to be concerned about, that's a catch-22. Tesla offered to limit the number of its sales and service locations in the bill earlier this year as a concession to TADA, not that it did any good. It appears he's another free market Republican who makes exceptions for markets controlled by his contributors.
