Electric Car Manufacturers May Sell Directly To Consumers

Concerning increasing consumer access to electric motor vehicles by allowing electric motor vehicle manufacturers to sell their own electric motor vehicles directly to consumers.
Session:
2019 Regular Session
Subject:
Transportation & Motor Vehicles
Bill Summary

Current law states that, with certain exceptions, a motor vehicle manufacturer may not own, operate, or control any motor vehicle dealer or used motor vehicle dealer in Colorado. The bill creates a new exception that allows the ownership, operation, or control of a motor vehicle dealer by an electric motor vehicle manufacturer that engages exclusively in the sale of electric motor vehicles of the same line-make as are manufactured by the electric motor vehicle manufacturer.

An "electric motor vehicle" is a motor vehicle that operates entirely on electrical power, does not include a fuel combustion engine, and has at least 4 wheels in contact with the ground during normal operation. An "electric motor vehicle manufacturer" is an entity that manufactures and sells electric motor vehicles and does not manufacture or sell motor vehicles that are fully or partly powered by a fuel combustion engine.
