People often think it is strange that I support Tesla's sales model. As a car-buying consultant, I am getting paid so people can avoid the typical dealership experience. If the Tesla direct sales strategy were to catch on there would be no need for my services. However, despite my own business I firmly believe that consumers should be able to choose how they purchase a product and businesses should be able to choose how they sell their goods. As a New Jersey resident I was incredibly disappointed about the Tesla ban. I wanted so much for Elon to win because I despise a lobby that pressures politicians to bypass the democratic process in order to enact laws counter to the free-market economy. All of this because the dealerships are afraid their days of ripping buyers off are numbered. I started thinking about all the dealership experiences I have had and I came to a realization….by reinventing the franchise model, Tesla can still change the way cars are sold.
