Outside the United States
FTC to Host Public Workshop Examining the U.S. Auto Distribution System Workshop Will Explore Competition, State Regulations, and Emerging Trends in the Industry, Project No. P131202
I'm not a US citizen and I was amazed when I find out what anti-competitive laws related to car sales you have. I expected the US to have much better legal framework. Artificial oligopoly created by the lawmakers... outrageous! Maybe suitable for the first part of the 20th century, but certainly not for the current situation. I prefer electric vehicles instead of ICE ones - for many reasons. Unofrtunately, so far the only "mainstream" real EV is made by a new entrant - Tesla. All established manufacturers don't show willingness to focus on that kind of cars and provide such models reluctantly and with many caveats and shortcomings. I would like Tesla to be able to unrestrictedly sell at least in their home market (USA), because if they are hindered even there I assume the barriers they will face abroad will be even bigger. Thus, for me to be able to buy a Tesla in the future there should be a Tesla company in the future... so I would like their economic foundations not to be eroded by their home laws and regulations.
