Today, the New Jersey motor vehicles department announced (with no chance for public review or comment) new regulations that effectively stop Tesla Motors from selling cars in New Jersey. The new requirements say all car sales must occur through a franchised dealership. Tesla insists the Model S can only be sold through company-owned stores, but has been facing legal challenges in several states.
