Settlement Allows Sales of Tesla in Michigan

Jan 24, 2020

An agreement between the State of Michigan and Tesla was announced this week allowing Michigan residents to purchase a Tesla and have it serviced in Michigan. Tesla is an MLC client.  Tesla can sell to customers as long as the sale occurs in another state. Upon receiving their vehicle in Michigan, residents will need to obtain a Michigan title from the Secretary of State’s office. Before the settlement, a Michigan resident wanting to buy a Tesla, had to travel out-of-state to purchase and receive the vehicle and again have the car taken out-of-state for necessary service on the vehicle, placing a cumbersome burden on the consumer. Following the stipulation to dismiss filed this week, Michigan residents will now have the ability to buy a Tesla and have it serviced in Michigan through a subsidiary of Tesla.
