    New Jersey To Tesla: You're Outta Here

    The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission voted Tuesday to ban the direct sale of vehicles in the state, becoming the third state in the nation to prevent Tesla from selling to consumers. That would force Tesla, founded by billionaire Elon Musk, to sell its cars through dealers.


    Instead, Tesla will stop selling cars in New Jersey on April 1, according to Dow Jones. That means the auto company won’t have access to one of the nation’s most lucrative markets for luxury vehicles, while well-heeled New Jerseyites will have to pick up their Teslas somewhere else.

    This is utter and complete bull****. Luckily though, karma just happens to be a nasty bitch. New Jersey, Texas, and Arizona will all probably lose out on the chance for a $5 billion mega factory by Tesla for passing these disgusting laws.

    Thoughts?

    Go over the Ben Franklin or Bristol Bridge and get it in PA using a friend or relatives address. Jersey is one of those states where no matter where you live you can easily get to another state within a maximum of a 2 hours drive (that's accounting for traffic). The reason these states are not allowing direct sales probably has to do with tax money, fees or some interstate dollars that are due to the state's coffers - the gubamint wants their money.

    Pretty sad.

    I detest that Tesla got all that taxpayer money to start up.

    But this is anti-free enterprise and blatant lobbyist pressure...which I also detest.

    And yet, that same gubamint is about to lose out on the potential bonanza in the $5B factory, as well as sales tax on these vehicles. It is a horrible move for the state.

    So the legislature has seen fit to forego who-knows-how-many great jobs to protect auto dealerships. Well, somebody will want them. If Tesla builds a plant in one of these states, I'll be very surprised.

    I don't know how it is in other states, but the automobile dealerships quite some time ago got enough clout in the legislature to ban auto sales on Sundays. What kind of sense does that make for working families? Can't buy a car on a Sunday. Another special interest consideration at the expense of the populace. I actually didn't realize automobile dealerships had so much clout.

    Well NJ wouldn't be in the running - taxes here and regulation even with Christie as Governor doesn't do much. NJ is a dark blue state. TX would have been in the running. They may go to one of the Southern States to expand.

    Did you read the article? They were in the running. Dark blue state, yeah yeah, but it is still a hot spot for luxury vehicles. Being close to your market saves costs.

    I've lived here most of my life - I believe selling them in NJ would be a boon, but putting an auto factory or assembly plant in NJ is a seriously bad decision. Proximity to NY, PA and MD as well as the NE corridor wouldn't make up for the negatives.

    And this is why I laugh when republicrats tout how easy it is to apply free market solutions to people employment woes.

    Hilarious.
