Car Dealers Don’t Want To Sell Electric Cars

I’ll give dealers the benefit of the doubt and assume that they simply believe electric cars aren’t for everyone at this point in time.

Industry insiders and those who follow the business closely say that dealers may also be worrying about their bottom lines. They assert that electric vehicles do not offer dealers the same profits as gas-powered cars. They take more time to sell because of the explaining required, which hurts overall sales and commissions. Electric vehicles also may require less maintenance, undermining the biggest source of dealer profits آ— their service departments.
