Michigan Joins List Of Tesla-Hating States

Michigan has just jumped on the "let's ban direct sales of Teslas in our state" bandwagon.

That amendment explicitly states that the dealership-only requirement applies to all car companies who sell, service, display or advertise vehicles in the state. This clarification effectively shuts the door on Tesla’s direct-sales approach in Michigan, meaning state residents will need to go out of state to buy one of the cars. That, or Tesla will need to make arrangements with franchised dealerships to sell their cars.
