However, electric carmakers like Tesla have no history of deals with third-party franchises. 

The law has kept the electric carmaker from doing official business in the state for years.    

In 2019, Tesla tried to push a new law in the state with the help of some favorable legislators, but local car dealer associations used their political influence to shut it down, according to Electrek.
