Tesla Has Obtained a Leasing License in CT
While Connecticut remains one of a handful of states that prohibit Tesla from opening stores, the company is now able to assist customers with lease arrangements at their Milford service facility. The dealership franchise laws that stand in the way of the company opening stores do not contain a restriction against direct from manufacturer leasing.
Tesla also sells its renewable energy products at the Milford location.
They are still not permitted to offer test drives, take orders for customers wishing to purchase a vehicle, arrange for financing, or offer vehicle delivery, but there is just this little bit of daylight with this license being put in place.
