Free electric vehicle manufacturers to sell to New Yorkers

An absurd debate is underway in Albany over whether New Yorkers should have the right to see, test drive and buy electric vehicles (EV) in their own state. Sales are currently restricted thanks to a decade-long effort from New York’s franchised auto dealers to protect an enviable legal position as guaranteed middlemen in virtually all new vehicle sales in the state. It is ridiculous and ironic that this is happening as the Legislature purports to be doing everything in its power to rise to the challenge of climate change.
