There's a law prohibiting Tesla from opening a store or performing service in New Mexico, and therefore from opening a service center. Specifically, NM Stat. Ann. §57-16-5, paragraph V, prevents manufacturers, distributors or their representatives from becoming a dealer or performing service. As a Model S owner, I want to see this changed, so I've sent emails to my state representative and state senator. I mentioned Warren Buffet's recent statement shrugging off the impact on the traditional dealer model (his company owns quite a few dealerships). I also included a link to press coverage of the recent NJ law passage allowing Tesla (& other zero-emissions manufacturers) to open stores & service centers legally. I said that without changing this law, Tesla will likely pass on NM again as a site for one of the many gigafactories Elon mentioned would be needed. Lastly, I mentioned that each service center or store would surely mean at least a dozen jobs for the state. I've also reached out through my network for anyone with connections to state legislature or government, to help get this law amended. If you want to see a store or service center in NM, please lookup your state representative and state senator at nmlegis.gov and send them each an email. Thanks.
