Should Tesla Need an Agreement to Sell Cars in NJ? [POLL]

NJ wants us to be more energy-efficient but then, as is typical in the Garden State, puts up the proverbial road block when you try and “go green.”

A new regulation passed earlier this week would prohibit auto makers such as California-based Tesla, from selling their cars in New Jersey without obtaining a franchise agreement order to receive a state license.

The new rule effectively prohibits electric car companies from using a direct sales model which would bring the cars directly to the consumers through smaller retail outlets.

Although, New Jersey isn’t the only one with heavy restrictions, as an interactive map shows where Tesla is actually allowed to sell their cars.

Some have criticized the regulation as a deterrent to the electric car companies attempt to expand the industry in New Jersey.

What’s your thoughts? Should NJ do away with this regulation on automotive dealers? Take the poll and let us know.
