Why are Cons afraid to let Tesla do direct selling?


Recommended Posts

Several states denying Tesla the opportunity to take part in free market Capitalism.

 

Big pharma and oil have direct selling.

If someone is not letting them do this, then they are not a conservative, by definition, moron. That would be a liberal policy.

It's actually car dealerships looking out for their interest.

 

Who the hell cares though? It's a $70k car.

No, it would be a fascist policy, something both Democrats and Republicans partake in.

 

Keep in mind, the NC bill was written and introduced by a Republican.

 

I also addressed this earlier.

Detail details details. What are they doing differently than other car manufacturers? Seem lik they are doing it themselves requiring a lot of capital from the company. That is why the other manufacturers use dealers, The dealers put up the money to buy the land, build the buildings, pave the car lot, Pay the mechanics, maintain an inventory, etc. This means that the car company does not have to have that financial investment. Tesla is struggling to just make the cars and having to do this means that they are more likely to go bankrupt. I read an account of a person going to a Tesla showroom to buy a car. OOPS they said he would have to wait to take delivery since they did not have an inventory of cars to choose from.

 

There in lies the problem. The states that are refusing to allow them to do this are looking at where they are already doing this. They do not like what they see. Keep in mind that there have been electric cars since the early days of cars. They were a bust then and will be now. They are more expensive and have a very limited range. That is why the hybrids are doing so much better. Get in a Tesla and go across a state like indiana. You will spend a lot of time getting the batteries charged and finding a charging station to do it. For $70,000 I would like more than a car to go just around the city. I want a car that can go on trips.

  • Today, Tucker’s 475-acre Chicago production plant houses a Tootsie Roll factory and shopping center. But 47 of the original 51 cars built there are running, and still exist in collections scattered throughout the world.

Tesla wants to sell its electric cars in the US and several states are passing laws that would FORCE the company to add huge expense and overhead in order to comply.

 

What is wrong with Tesla direct selling to the public, thus avoiding the whole ponzi dealership business model?

Again:

What is your beef with the issue?

 

And perhaps address why the NC Senate passed it unanimously, conservatives and liberals.

Oh look another hypocritical liberal wanting to eliminate government regulation and put good, hardworking union members out of work.

You live in Texas and want to buy one?

Here's the form: Pick your model, pick your color, plop down your money and get your car.

Why are Rick Perry and several other states enacting laws that prevent Tesla from selling its product direct from manufacturer to buyer?

 

Boeing does it. GE does it, so why not Tesla?

 

This is an unconstitutional attempt to regulate interstate commerce.
