    After months at a standstill at the Michigan Secretary of State office, Tesla’s application for a dealership license in order to service and sales its vehicles in the state was rejected earlier this month.

    Electrek has learned today that Tesla filed a lawsuit against the state in order “to vindicate its rights under the United States Constitution to sell and service its critically-acclaimed, all-electric vehicles at Tesla-owned facilities in the State of Michigan”. more…

    This is precisely why I cannot become enthusiastic about the Volt/Bolt. GM is a disgrace. Mary Barra should be canned.

    Same here, absolutely hate dirty underhand tactics in industry. If you want to win, do a better product.

    I will never get a GM affiliated car ever. This bunch is heading in the same direction that VW took when they declared war on Hybrids and alternative fuel cars. Look where they ended up, pretty certain GM and affiliates will suffer the same fate.

    Mary is not the problem. The problem, as with most history, is that things got started long ago, and therefore, in another age. Once you have bet the farm on something, the betting board of directors becomes of a mind to "stay the course." People only think the past is safe because they somehow survived it.

    It's like a game of King of the Hill. Rather than change, the old guard studies more martial arts in hopes of winning by kicking the new age competitors in the teeth.

    But historians know better. The Roman emperors do not go on to orate at the U.N.. The Luddites did not stop automation from coming. The future is not going to give up and go away, any more than global climate change is going to be embarrassed from lack of recognition into becoming imaginary.

    This too shall pass.
