Tesla has asked its fanbase to contact the Governor, Senate, and Assembly of the state of New York and ask them to allow direct sales of electric vehicles. In some U.S. states, car manufacturers can't sell directly to buyers.

Tesla has requested its fanbase to contact the Governor, Senate, and Assembly leadership of the state of New York about allowing the company to sell its cars directly to consumers. Some states in the U.S. don’t allow vehicle manufacturers to sell directly to buyers as it can impact car dealerships. While many states have changed or abolished these laws, New York is among the ones that haven’t.

In 2014, New York granted Tesla special permission to open five stores in the state to sell cars directly to buyers. Since then, Tesla has grown tremendously and is therefore looking to expand. But because of such anti-competitive laws, it can’t. Not only does this hamper Tesla’s growth, but it also discourages other EV makers like Lucid from investing in the state.

According to a post on Tesla Engage, New York ranks 23rd in EV adoption because of laws preventing EV makers from selling directly to consumers. By comparison, Florida allows direct sales and therefore has 50% more electric car registrations per capita than New York.
