I’d sell Tesla electric cars, says AutoNation CEO

Tesla Motors only sells its “marvelous product” directly—but if it ever moves to a retail model, AutoNation would be “completely open” to selling its vehicles, said Mike Jackson, the chairman and CEO of the dealership giant.

“It’s an excellent electric car,” Jackson told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Thursday. “If you take the Fisker, which was a terrible car, the company is now bankrupt. You take Tesla, which is an outstanding car, and the company is really finding its way.”

By all accounts, Tesla cars are well-made and safe, but the brand has also gotten a boost from its Silicon Valley-cool factor and the cult-of-personality that is billionaire founder Elon Musk, who’s said to be the inspiration behind the “Iron Man” movie depiction of Tony Stark.
