North Carolina Wants to Ban Tesla... And Only Tesla

Оценок: 3623 | Просмотров: 277545
"From the state that brought you the nation's first ban on climate science comes another legislative gem: a bill that would prohibit automakers from selling their cars in the state. The proposal, which the Raleigh News & Observer reports was unanimously approved by the state's Senate Commerce Committee on Thursday, would apply to all car manufacturers, but the intended target is clear."* North Carolina lawmakers want to effectively ban Tesla, the electric car company, because of "unfair" competition. Of course, the bill is being pushed by the state automobile dealer's association and the bill's sponsor took the maximum amount of campaign contributions from that group. Lovely. John Iadarola (Host, TYT University) breaks it down. *Read more from Slate: http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2013/05/13/north_carolina_tesla_ban_bill_would_prevent_unfair_competition_with_car.html Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://www.youtube.com/user/theyoungturks Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/theyoungturks Support TYT for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=theyoungturks-20 Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/ Support The Young Turks by becoming a member of TYT Nation at http://www.tytnetwork.com/member-options/.

The auto dealership system was set up by virulent anti-Semite Henry Ford so that he could unload his cars ASAP on the dealers and therefore not have to carry the inventory of those cars on FMC's books. Ford and the other big Detroit automakers are doomed and they know it.....the Tesla tsunami will crush them....they are just trying to buy as much time as possible....their tactics for the next 5 years will be to delay the EV paradigm shift as much as possible.

They only love the free market when it keeps businesses, corporations+ people already rich&⬆ rich&⬆ while s*rewing 99.9% of 🇺🇸 population. That is because conservatives, republicans& liberterians truly believe only they not you know what to do with your money. We really have to vote the old politicians+ conservatives, republicans& liberterians our of all government office because they make laws to block/ halt progress; their truly believe through the laws they put on the books that you idiots keep voting for that if I just halt/ prevent progress/ change them progress/ change will never come; Please people in the 🇺🇸 start voting as though you are way smarter than that‼

We need to create a national law that supercedes any state law which makes legislators PERSONALLY and PROFESSIONLLY LIABLE if they sponsor and co-sponsor any legislation that is deemed unconstitutional by the State or Federal Supreme Courts. If you sponsor an unconstitutional law, you can never hold elected office again, you lose your license to practice law for at least 5 years and you are subject to tort legislation by everyone effected by your law. That would stop this shit.

The goal is to force them to pay a licenced 3rd party dealer to sell for them . It is the dealer network trying to maintain their monopoly . It does not matter what car you buy right now it must be bought through the dealer association . This is a monopoly and a cost you did not know existed .

When I hear things like this, it just strengthens my decision to never by a car from a dealership again. I have committed to buying my next car from Tesla.

probably has a lot to do with Tesla being government subsidized to. I think we should all get Tesla's for free, since we're paying for them regardless if we own them.

The CEO's at Tesla should be wary of the fate that befell John Delorean when he tried to compete with the big three. Learn from the past and watch your butts. Guaranteed their out there plotting against you along with their cohorts in the petroleum industry and will literally take full advantage of their government connections to drive Tesla into bankruptcy.

What are the dealerships REALLY afraid of? It's not the manner that the product is sold, it's the product itself. They are intimidated by the TESLA brand. Maybe Musk turned down the dealerships' offer to sell his car (3rd party market). But, if a resident of your state really wants a TESLA, they will go to a neighbor state and buy one. Then, the revenues are realized somewhere else. Now, what have you accomplished. You took away maybe millions in revenues, and taxes on those sales. REAL SMART! Put your pride aside, and accept reality. Dealerships of ICE (internal combustion engine) vehicles might be afraid that Musk's vision will come true, to take over the industry, in the US and worldwide. But, this is the 21st century. Accept your fate.

Lee Elliott (1 год назад)
I've heard from several sources that the dealerships make very little money on the sale of your average new car. The money is in aftermarket sales, repairs and service. So regardless of whether a car is sold through a dealership or on line or through a manufacturer owned store, it is still going to need all those money making services. Conservatives hate it when things change, and the way we buy and use cars is definitely changing.

The great state of NC is free to make it's laws as it sees fit. If that's what people want, that's how it should be. Don't like it? Don't go to NC. I think TX has the same law for the same reason. That's how freedom is supposed to work. You anti-American dimwits think "freedom" is the federal govt FORCING you to do things. No thanks. I'm more concerned that tesla has received federal $$$....money stolen from me, and given to a rich guy to develop a product I don't want. That is called "tyranny". I am against almost all welfare, public and corporate.
mike force (1 год назад)
you are welcome, dumbakk. the federal gov-co has NO right to take my money and give it to someone else to make a "cool car". The state of NC has EVERY right to make laws that regulate biz in it's own borders. If I don't like the law, and I don't particularly, I can call my reps and gov and tell them to change it. I have VASTLY more power to chg things at a state level than a national one. And so, I've now had to explain FACTS to you two times, you dumb sob. You can now give a sincere thank you and shut your ignorant pie hole, joff.
Sailor Barsoom (1 год назад)
So it's tyranny when the federal government tells you you must do this or you can't do that, but it's freedom when a state government tells you you must do this or you can't do that. Thanks for explaining that.

They may not admit it, but all of the manufacturers would love for this bill to be challenged and found unconstitutional. Then they could sell cars direct and have higher margins. Porsche tried to bypass dealers in the 80's and failed. I think Tesla will simply ignore NC and buyers will buy out of state. Tesla has bigger challenges to overcome than NC.

I agree with you Hadef Shajir,, They want to Ban Tesla because they wont get Money from them. Tesla doesnt want to give the authorization for car dealers to sell their cars coz Tesla Cars are special Cars,,needs extreme understandings of it,, and Tesla doesnt want their car Prices to SkyRocket in the market, they want it for people to be Affordable in any forms of Life. And another thing,,Arent they realizing the benefit of it (Tesla Cars) to our environment?Cleaner air for our Future Children?

Governments around the world are not worried about competition from Tesla Motors, they are worried about losing gas stations, which lose jobs and money that is put into the government.

realrunner2000 Except you don't need a charge station like you need a gas station. Your house can be a charge station. In capitalism, any entity that becomes too big to adapt is in danger of becoming obsolete.

they can just have "Charge Stations" because it takes minutes to charge and people can come in and get a drink or food. plus, they have them currently at restaurants, so the money is shifted

Third party dealerships are used by the manufacturers to distance themselves from customers. Dealers also use it to their advantage by saying "we are not the manufacturer" It drives customers nuts but puts layers of prtection on for the dealers and the manufacturers.
Nanette Sage (2 года назад)
Since when does NC even follow the Federal Laws? So far, the Federal Government has given them their way by not taking action. As far as I am concerned, they are moving towards their eventual goal to secede from the US if the Federal Government keeps letting them do what they feel like. No matter how illegal it is.
Harry Schultze (2 года назад)
I don't know if it backfired there but it sure worked in Texas and Michigan Tesla is banned in those States.
realrunner2000 (2 года назад)
+Harry Schultze yes, one allows the users to buy them, the other does not and that means no charging stations and hurts them more. the other options causes more wait but they still can build charge stations. one is squeezing your throat and the other is lunching you. big difference

Is there any substantial difference in the end result?

Carnutzjoe (2 года назад)
mike cioka: no, dealers across the country are behind this. The manufacturers want Tesla to win so they could sell direct, but the dealership network is very established and has a lot of money and clout. Porsche tried to bypass their dealers in the 80's and failed. Tesla will probably ignore NC and buyers will have to go out of state. But at some point the dealers will go away. They're outdated

Many states have similar long-standing laws protecting local car dealers. The North Carolina bill isn't a new concept. I do know that the Tesla showroom in Charlotte cannot sell you a car, but they can provide service and test drives. I think they can sell in Raleigh. Other states that ban direct sales from manufacturers include: Montana North Dakota South Dakota Wisconsin Michigan Maine Alabama Louisiana Texas New Mexico Arizona Utah Wyoming Kentucky West Virginia Oklahoma Kansas Nebraska Iowa and others
Kevin Davidson (1 год назад)
Powerful dealer associations lobby state legislatures to make laws preventing it. Another reason is that the manufacturers get to book revenue when they ship the car to a dealer. They make their profit earlier, and don't have to finance inventory sitting in showrooms.

Nothing will ever replace the growling of a supercharged internal combustion engine. The engine isn't the problem, Ford originally made their engines to run on gas AND alcohol or ethanol. Which can be made from any organic material and is very inexpensive and burns A LOT cleaner than petroleum gas. But like always, the pieces of shit that ran oil companies bought politicians and forced them to use petroleum. Every gas station in Brazil is required by law to offer ethanol, if I remember right. They made huge progress, but the oil companies still have a death grip on the American people and car companies. But electric cars are the future nonetheless.

Looks like bill of attainder is for capital offenses and there are worse crimes going on that deserve that than this I think. Coal ash still pollutes people's water and hog/chicken farms foul the air for miles where they invade the rural landscape. I also worry about lookalikes and the whole violation of due process when reading about bills of attainder.
AnantaSesaDas (2 года назад)
I've bought a couple of cars direct from the owner and never had any problem with registering them. If there is an issue with higher priced used cars then the purchaser might pay in silver coins. Just say it was sold for the coins' face value and claim a loss on your taxes. So my guess is that my theory might work legally. You just can't sell it as new and that might affect the warranty.
