Tesla has found a loophole in CT law that is big enough to fit a Tesla semi load of cars through.......
CT law bars a manufacturer from selling directly to consumers. However that law says nothing about leases...... Why? Because leasing didn’t exist when the laws were written........:-)
The DMV in CT has granted Tesla a license to lease cars and do test drives for people that are interested in leasing. The local dealers are pissed to say the least. Here is an article that was just posted. Full disclosure, I was interviewed for the article.https://www.courant.com/business/hc-biz-tesla-leasing-20191218-gv7nugc5zbbb5ckjnzpicv5rou-story.html
Perhaps Tesla can try this angle in other states.
