NJ Assembly OKs Tesla Electric Car Sales

 

TRENTON (AP) — The Assembly has unanimously approved a bill that would allow zero-emission carmakers to sell directly to consumers in New Jersey.

The bill backed by environmentalists would allow Tesla to resume sales in New Jersey. It was approved Monday.

The state Motor Vehicle Commissioner earlier this year approved regulations that require new-car dealers to have franchise agreements, effectively banning Tesla’s business model.

The Senate has not yet considered the direct-to-consumers bill.

Earlier Monday, environmental and business advocates had rallied in front of the Statehouse to call on legislators to pass the bill.

Assembly sponsor Tim Eustace said the bill is good for business and will create jobs.
