Tesla gets approval to have Arizona car dealerships
PHOENIX — Tesla Motors, the maker of the luxury hybrid cars founded by Elon Musk, has received approval to sell cars in Arizona after winning its court battle.
According to Arizona Capitol Times, the automotive manufacturer sought a license to sell its cars in Arizona but was hindered by a legal hurdle. A Maricopa County judge ruled that the block doesn’t apply to Tesla, giving the company clearance to sell its cars directly to customers.
Tesla already has two brick-and-mortar locations in Arizona, one in Scottsdale and one in Tempe. The automaker features electric vehicles and was founded in 2003 in Silicon Valley, its website states.
