Tesla Gets OK To Sell Cars In Ohio
(Columbus, OH) -- An electric-car maker's plans to sell in Ohio have the blessing of the state's auto dealership owners.
Joe Cannon is with the Ohio Automobile Dealers Association. The association and Tesla Motors reached a deal earlier this week to cap the automaker's stores to locations in Columbus, Cincinnati and Cleveland. Tesla's direct-to-the-consumer sales approach has been seen as undermining traditional franchised auto dealerships. Lawmakers in New York and other states are threatening outright bans on Tesla's business model.
