Tesla’s move in Michigan means …

Two ways to read the Tesla-dealer story:

  1. Tesla wants to open Michigan stores that have just enough independence to qualify as “dealerships.” Basically, Tesla will terminate an employee and then set him/her up as an “independent” dealer — only to run a store that looks and operates exactly like Tesla’s other stores.
  2. This is just a legal maneuver to elicit a response from Michigan, so that Tesla lawyers know what weaponry this battle will require. That’s what Tesla has told the press, in different words.
