Courtesy of Reuters TV, we present this video focused on Tesla's direct sales versus dealership battle.
"Tesla Motors is cleaning up in the "green" auto arena, but it's in a head-on fight with U.S. car dealers worried that if Tesla's direct sales model catches on, major automakers like GM and Ford might ditch their dealers."
It seems likely to us that this "collision course" will continue for perhaps years as Tesla dukes it out against the various automotive dealer associations and politicians on a state-by-state basis.
Did you know that Tesla Motors has yet to open a store or service center in Michigan? Why do you think Tesla has yet to venture into Michigan, home to the "automotive capital of the world?"
