Tesla Service centers and dealerships now allowed in Vermont

Just found out about this today.... apparently Tesla was blocked from opening a dealership or service center in Vermont. That is, until June 7 2021, when the Governor signed S.47 into law. Hopefully now Tesla will open a dealership or at least a service center in the green mountain state.


An act relating to motor vehicle manufacturers, dealers, and warranty or service facilities​

Last Recorded Action House 5/21/2021 - Senate Message, signed by Governor June 7, 2021
Montpelier, Vt. - Governor Phil Scott announced action on the following bills, passed by the General Assembly.

S.47 has been dubbed the “Tesla bill,” because it would open the door for Tesla, Inc. — the California-based maker of a popular line of high-end electric cars — to run its own shops in Vermont through which it could sell and service vehicles directly.

Besides allowing electric car makers to open consumer-direct stores, the legislation would place those operations under the same regulations that apply to third-party dealers. It would further bar car companies that don’t make electric cars from opening consumer-direct operations.

side note: perhaps Indians could do a postal box & auto registration (license plates of course).

Lawyer & Judges will love this - court cases for decades ??

another side note: Jeff wants to help and is adding to Amazon Prime EV purchases --- he thinks this is the only way he can get a Roadster or perhaps win one.
[that's a joke, Son]

Tesla demand when they have stores in all 50 states. imagine
