New Jersey gives Tesla two more weeks to direct sell

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

The state of New Jersey extends the enforcement of a law that would ban the direct selling to consumers of automobiles to April 15.

The two-week extension will give Tesla Motors (TSLA) an opportunity to work out a deal with the dealership association in the state.

Many automobile industry analysts think Tesla will keep chipping away at the dealer stranglehold in the U.S. with piecemeal deals.
