Tesla Rebuffs Texas Dealers In Bid For Direct Sales

That’s because Texas has one of the country’s strictest car sales laws, as any new car must be sold through a franchised dealership. Some legislators have proposed a hybrid system, where after 5,000 sales Tesla would have to start issuing franchises, but Musk seems determined to be able to sell his cars his way. To that end, Tesla will be upping its lobbyist spending in Texas. In 2014, Tesla spent between $170,000 and $370,000 on lobbyists, but this year the automaker will spend at least $625,000 and as much as $1.18 million to convince the state legislature to allow a direct sales setup. He will also pitch a hyperloop test track and a possible Tesla factory expansion…one day.
