The recent Forum article touting the efforts of Connecticut car dealerships on electric vehicle adoption is self-serving hypocrisy and a complete lie. A few years ago, those same dealers were successful in blocking out Telsa Connecticut showrooms. More than anyone else, these dealerships have hampered the adoption of electric vehicles in our state.
Tesla is by far the most advanced EV on the market. When Connecticut residents want to test drive a Tesla, they have to travel to New York or Massachusetts. When I bought a Tesla, I did it online. There was no intermediate local dealer to take a cut. I have had my Tesla for four years and my maintenance and repair costs are limited to one annual visit. Updates are all performed automatically over the Internet at no cost.
