Tesla faces a roadblock in New Jersey

|About: Tesla Motors (TSLA)|By:, SA News Editor

Tesla Motors (TSLA) says Governor Christie’s administration in New Jersey is pushing forward legislation that will curtail its ability to conduct sales in the state.

Christie is a strong proponent of blocking the direct sales model of Tesla in favor of requiring the use of a third-party dealer.

The EV automaker has had success in blocking similar legislation proposals in other states, but New Jersey could be a tough nut to crack.
