Tesla Motors can’t email customers, says North Carolina law – CSMonitor.com

How far will state car-dealer associations go to prevent Tesla Motors from opening its electric-car showrooms and selling cars over the Internet?

A long, long way.

In North Carolina, a new law passed by the state Senate would apparently make it illegal for Tesla to e-mail its customers.

In other words, if you’re a North Carolina resident who has a question about Tesla, the new law may prohibit Tesla Motors [NSDQ:TSLA] from responding to your question via e-mail.

The specific wording of the law bars automakers from “using a computer or other communications facilities, hardware, or equipment” to sell or lease acar to anyone in North Carolina.

Even telephones?

This seemed rather remarkable to us, so we asked Tesla communications director Shanna Hendriks if we were understanding the law correctly.

“That is not an unreasonable interpretation of the law,” she said.
