Tesla backs bill allowing vehicle manufacturers in New Mexico

New Mexico

Tesla is hoping the state legislature will win back a Senate bill to let the company open up shop in New Mexico.

According to The Albuquerque Journal, Tesla representatives answered questions from the legislative interim committee Tuesday.

This is over a bill sponsored by State Sen. Jerry Ortiz Y Pino.

It would amend state law to let vehicle manufacturers like Tesla, open up shop in the state instead of selling through a franchised dealership.

Tesla officials told the committee the current rules hurt Tesla car owners.

Those against it say it could hurt local dealers.
