Existing Auto Dealers Don’t Want You To Have Options

To note, existing auto dealers have introduced HB2028 SB5945: A Bill that would place even further restrictions on companies like Rivian which would result in making it one of the restrictive states to purchase an EV. These additional restrictions are proposed in Subsection 18, which could prohibit manufacturers from engaging consumers online and accepting preorders or reservations. We have requested the bill sponsors consider an amendment to allow for direct-to-consumer EV sales for auto manufacturers that have not previously offered a franchise to a dealer in the state.
