Tesla Beats Franchise Dealers

teslaTesla Motors won dismissal of a lawsuit brought by the Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers Association claiming Tesla was in violation of Massachusetts law by conducting sales within the state.
A Superior Court judge dismissed the case based upon the auto dealers' lack of standing and failure to state a claim.

Several months ago the judge denied a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction requested by the Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers Association and in December Tesla Motors was granted a full Class 1 Dealer License by the Town of Natick's Board of Selectmen.

The Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers Association has also filed a separate lawsuit against the individual Selectmen that make up the Natick Board.

Tesla is pursuing a company owned store and service center model to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicle technology and to interact with consumers in a friendly, open and no-pressure environment. Tesla's retail concept demonstrates the benefits of driving electric through informative videos, interactive displays, and a Design Studio where customers can configure their own Tesla Model S on a large touchscreen.
