Automotive Dealers in New York Trying to Make It Illegal to Register a Tesla

New bill put aside until January

Tesla Motors has been fighting in multiple states to gain the right to have its own factory owned dealerships. The problem for Tesla is that most states have laws against that and Tesla has been trying to get laws rewritten. That doesn't set well with established dealerships in those states, including Texas and New York among others.

A pair of bills has been introduced by the New York State Legislature that are backed by the New York State automotive dealers Association that would make it illegal to license or renew licenses for Tesla stores within New York. The bills would make it impossible for residents of the state to purchase a vehicle not sold by an independently owned a third-party. In other words, the bill would ban any vehicle not purchased from the dealer.

The bill was set aside by the New York State assembly on Friday night and won't be looked at again until January when the assembly reconvenes. Tesla is currently the only automotive manufacturer that sells cars directly to consumers and doesn't use franchised dealers.

Tesla Introduces New Lease Program, Cuts Model S Monthly Payments

Oct 27 2014 5:08pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Tesla has finally introduced a proper lease program that cuts monthly and down payments on its Model S to somewhat more reasonable levels. By “proper,” we mean Tesla is using an outside bank (in this case, U.S. Bank) instead of setting aside some of its own cash, as it continues to do with its considerably pricier financing program it had been advertising as a lease since April 2013. That program—which is really a 72-month purchase loan with 3-percent inter ...

Tesla Launches Model S Lease Program

Oct 27 2014 4:02pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

Luxury electric-car manufacturer Tesla this past weekend announced the launch of its new U.S. Bank-backed lease program that practically dons a polyester suit and says, "What's it gonna take for me to put you in a new Model S, today." Not only does the lease price work out to a more than $150-a-month net savings compared with purchasing a Model S outright, but it allows lessees to return the car without penalty if they're not satisfied.
