We saw one of the first used Tesla Model S sedans go up for sale last week and it got us thinking, where can you buy, supercharge or service a Tesla these days? We scoured the internet and bribed our design team to put it all together in a sweet infographic – enjoy!
States that Ban Direct Sales: 23
States that Allow Tesla to Sell Cars: 27
Manufacturer direct sales are banned in the red states. Tesla can have service centers, superchargers and stores and galleries in these states but cannot sell or deliver cars. For example, you can check out a Tesla at Short Hills Mall in New Jersey, but you cannot take a test drive or discuss pricing with a salesperson. If you want to purchase a car, you would have to buy at TeslaMotors.com and then arrange a delivery. On March 15, 2014 Ohio passed a bill that will allow Tesla to sell its electric cars but it’s waiting to be signed into law by Governor Kasich. Read about it here.
