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 Model S Hackathon in China Turns Up Nothing More Sinister than Parlor Tricks

Jul 21 2014 12:44pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Bloomberg Breakfast - 2014 Tribeca Film Festival
When news came recently of a conference in China dedicated to the hacking of a Tesla Model S, we were intrigued. After all, with the increasing connectivity of modern vehicles—to say nothing of a fully electric ride like the Model S—the threat of hackers somehow breaking into a car’s brain is mildly concerning. We’ve even devoted some space to the topic of hacking a car, especially given the loose security of ...

Nürburgring Proves Too Much For Tesla Model S: Video

JAPAN-AUTO-LAMBORGHINI
Standard road cars used to be rather hopeless at tackling race circuits. Tires and brakes overheat, vast expanses of asphalt can make even brisk cars feel quite slow, and road-biased suspension means cornering felt like negotiating the Pacific ocean in an inflatable raft.

Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of the Boa
True to its intentions of becoming a Tesla fighter, Audi is reportedly working on an e-tron variant of the A8 sedan due out next year. Britain’s AutoExpress says the German automaker will be adding a second model to its e-tron lineup based on the A8 sedan. The formula will be similar to the A3 e-tron hatchback we drove recently, but the A8 e-tron will be powered by the automaker’s new 3.0-litre diesel V6 engine and paired to an electric motor. Audi technical development chief Dr. Ulrich ...
