US state introduces anti-Tesla legislation

North Carolina has introduced new legislation effectively aimed at the makers of electric cars, Tesla.

The state has introduced legislation that prohibits car manufacturers from selling their cars directly to consumers, with the bill’s sponsor, state Senator Tom Apodaca, Republican, saying that it will prevent unfair competition between manufacturers and dealers – giving a new take on how one can define a free market…

As Tesla is the only manufacturer to sell their cars directly to the end user, the bill is also a jab in the face of electric cars from the state which last year banned predictions about rising sea levels.
