Correction! Tesla not now ready to open in Virginia

Correction! Tesla not now ready to open in Virginia

The article we published in the last WANADA Bulletin (46-14, Nov. 30) reported Tesla, the electric sports car manufacturer with a dealerless retail model, as ready to open a retail outlet in Tysons Corner, Virginia. This is not correct. Tesla must first apply for and be granted a license to retail cars in the Commonwealth from the Motor Vehicle Dealer Board. The likelihood is that Tesla will comply with all the Commonwealthês requirements, including those of MVDB, per Teslaês agreement with Virginia officials to be allowed to open one (1) OEM- direct, dealerless outlet in Northern Virginia.

Weêre grateful to Bruce Gould, director of MVDB, for the clarification on our report.
