The Fight Over Tesla | Radio Boston

Electric cars are here. Ford, Nissan, and Honda are just some of the companies that are making All-electric cars. And as batteries improve and electric charging stations pop up across the country, electric car companies are hoping to revolutionize the auto industry.

Then there’s the Tesla Motor company of California, which wants not only to revolutionize WHAT we drive — but how we buy it. Tesla makes the Model S, a luxury all-electric car that sells for about 100-thousand dollars. And the company wants to bypass traditional dealerships and sell directly to you from its own show-rooms — in the same way that Apple sells its Macs and I-pads from its own Apple Stores.
