Tesla Motors  is getting a lot of traction these days, and dealerships don’t like it. The has come under increasing recently, particularly in eco-conscious where car sales are steadily prominence, as are its supercharger charging

But according to California New Car Dealers (CNCDA) the problem with isn’t its unusual over-the-Web technique (although this has a bone of contention in some recently), but that it isn’t the truth to consumers.

The CNCDA that Tesla’s online calculator. which is designed to consumers what their payment would be if they a Tesla car, is misleading.

The 20-page complaint. which was September 16, 2013 with the Department of Motor Vehicles accuses Tesla Motors of “a advertising strategy to mislead as to the affordability of its vehicles.” The complaint a number of issues, including the of a tax rebate that it says consumers would not be eligible for on their incomes.

“The tax is completely irrelevant to the purchase for the Model S. Whether the customer applies for the credit, has insufficient tax to claim the full tax credit, or can the full credit, the tax credit has no on the purchase price of the Model S,” the asserts in its complaint.

The organization also cites a Budget Office study in the agency says that 20 percent of tax filers have the tax to use a $7,500 tax credit.

No doubt this idea car dealers nervous. It not only out the car dealer, but makes it easier for the car highest-bracket customers to investigate on their own time without the of a one-to-one with a salesperson.

My suspicion is that Tesla when it went to market they would be testing well-entrenched notions about car what’s kosher and what’s Judging by the CNCDA’s complaint, it like Tesla will be testing the boundaries of laws weren’t directed at protecting the consumer – and in a state that itself on consumer action. But though California’s car dealers may they have grounds to the final decision when it to the success of a car sale ultimately with the consumer.

And that’s a that I am sure Tesla has already figured out.
