TSLA Stock: It looks as if Tesla Inc. will continue its fight against the direct sales ban that the company has been fighting in different states. According to a report by Electrek, the electric car maker has secured yet another important win, and this time it’s in Wyoming after the state legislature approved a new bill through which the company would now be able to sell its cars directly to the consumers.
This is a significant win for the company considering that the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (AAM) has been lobbying against the direct sales business model of the company. Daniel Witt, the business development manager for the Palo Alto Company, lobbied against the bill and also gave test drives of Model S to the legislatures.
The bill is now on the desk of the Governor Matt Mead for signature, and once that is done Tesla will be able to sell its cars directly to its customers in Wyoming. Not only the automaker will be able to open up its showroom but as well as a service center in a state which was previously not present. Tesla will now look out for possible locations to open up its store and service center.
Prior to this, Tesla owners in Wyoming had to face troubled times as they had to drive all the way to Denver to get their cars serviced. The company has currently sold about 50 cars to people residing in Cheyenne, Casper, and Jackson. And it is expected that once the deliveries of Model 3 starts, these numbers are supposed to go up.
