Facing opposition from auto groups, Tesla looks to change Texas law so it can sell cars in the state

Tesla Motors appears to have become embroiled in a legal tangle in the great state of Texas. Earlier this week, the automotive manufacturer found itself facing opposition from the state’s auto dealers association who are seeking to stop Tesla from selling, delivering, and servicing its vehicles in Texas.

This is the latest standoff between the Tesla and dealership associations. It had previously gone up against similar groups in Massachusetts and in other states who also do not want the company to operate near them.

At the heart of the matter appears to be Texas’s franchise law. Right now, while Tesla operates two “galleries” in Austin and Houston, in order for the manufacturer to operate legally, its representatives cannot “initiate or complete a sales transaction or deliver a vehicle on-site.
