NJ Auto Dealer Association President Challenges Tesla’s Allegations

Tesla Motors will be barred from selling its cars in New Jersey after April 1 following a decision yesterday by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC), and that’s no joke.

Nor was an 11th hour Tesla blog post attempting to rouse support yesterday interpreted by New Jersey officials as funny. On the contrary, Jim Appleton, president of the New Jersey Coalition of Automotive Retailers (NJ CAR) in so many words said it was a pouting session by an influential lawbreaker used to getting its way.

In the post, Tesla did lash out saying it had been let down from “good faith” assurances by Gov. Chris Christie’s administration, and the NJMVC. It implied also it and NJ CAR had agreed to publicly discuss their differences.

But nothing could be further from the truth, said Appleton. Instead, he said, Tesla’s words smack of hypocrisy, self incrimination, and more. And if what Tesla wrote implicating the governor, NJMVC and legislature means as much as it implies, there might be trouble beyond Tesla being barred from doing business.
