Tesla Sues Michigan State Over Ban On Direct Sales

Dear Michigan, we would like to introduce you to something called 'the internet' where they do something called online sales. This manner of commerce has been working out for the entire planet for more than a few years, and we think you might like it as well. Come, join everyone in 'the future!' wink

The suit at U.S. District Court in Michigan comes days after the state rejected the electric vehicle manufacturer's application to directly sell vehicles to consumers. Unlike other automakers, Tesla does not sell vehicles through franchised dealers. Tesla's suit says it is seeking on an expedited basis an order that it is "entitled to a vehicle dealer license."
