Tesla's Business Model
1. Make things.
2. Sell them directly to consumers in stores owned and operated by Tesla.
Why is this an issue?
In the 1920's car manufacturers worked with dealers to help stabilize the market.
There are laws protecting dealers made by the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) from entering competition with their manufacturers (19th largest political donor) .
Why doesn't Tesla sell to dealerships?
Telsa wants to maintain control of its own brand.
They don't believe it would be a success.
They don't want a middleman.
