Perhaps you’ve seen the “Tesla Crash” website, a smear campaign set up by a gang of Connecticut auto dealers who apparently fear Tesla’s factory-direct precedent. Well, the head of the same gang has the balls to get on TV and say he wants to sell Teslas.
Yes, he’s trying to promote a bridge between Tesla and franchisees like himself — while he’s already lit a match to that same bridge. Makes sense, right?
TeslaMondo’s advice for dealers is to step up their game so that Tesla will want to use dealers. Smear campaigns are not the stuff of courtship. They’re the stuff of divorce, Mr. Fleming.
