Unions need to go...they hurt innovation and sometimes completely destroy it.
"The state Motor Vehicle Commission last week unanimously passed a rule requiring franchised dealers to sell electric cars rather than allowing manufacturers to sell directly to customers as Tesla does at two showroom locations in New Jersey — at the Garden State Plaza and The Mall at Short Hills."

And who is going to be franchising? The Unions will be. Maybe not in NJ but I gurantee other state's dealer unions are feeling the pressure that may come from tesla.
Ford was trying to let customers order cars online and they would deliver it within a couple weeks or less to a Ford hub. Some states pushed them out before they could try it.
