Governor Cuomo Announces Agreement with Dealers and Tesla

We are very pleased to announce that after very difficult negotiations and a lot of help form the Governor and various legislators, we were able to come to an agreement that paves the way for passage of the Franchise Reform Act. The sticking point has been Tesla’s insistence that it be able to sell its vehicles outside of the franchise system. This agreement preserves the franchise system limiting Tesla to only the stores that it currently operates. We thank every member and the regional associations for their hard work and staying in touch with the legislators during this process. This is a great victory! Once again, Governor Cuomo provided key support to the franchise dealers in New York State. The following, is the Governor’s press release on this important issue.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced an agreement between Tesla Motors, the New York State Automobile Dealers Association and the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association to resolve a dispute concerning how auto manufacturers can sell their products to consumers. Under the agreement, Tesla Motors will maintain their five currently licensed retail locations in New York State. Additional Tesla retail locations will be established under a strengthened dealer franchise law. Legislation to implement the agreement will be introduced with the support of leadership in the Senate and Assembly.

“Today’s agreement reaffirms New York’s longstanding commitment to the dealer franchise system, while making sure New York remains a leader in spurring innovative businesses and encouraging zero emissions vehicle sales” said Governor Cuomo. “The agreement is a win-win for consumers, for the franchised auto dealers and manufacturers who play such a vital role in New York’s economy, and for cutting edge companies like Tesla. I want to thank Lou Roberti of the New York State Automobile Dealers Association, Neale Kuperman of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association, and Elon Musk of Tesla for their willingness to work together to reach this agreement.”

Lou Roberti, Chairman of the New York State Automobile Dealers Association said, “I am delighted that we have been able to come to this agreement. I want to thank Governor Cuomo for the leadership that he provided that brought this agreement together, as well as the leaders of the Senate and Assembly for their commitment to passing the necessary legislation. This agreement will serve as a model for other states as they consider how to accommodate Tesla and a distribution system that has served the public well. Franchised dealers provide price competition, a ready source of trained technicians and parts for repairs and recalls, and create a market for trade-ins. Franchised dealers also provide thousands of good paying jobs in communities throughout the State. I know I speak for NYSADA’s more than 1,000 franchise dealers and their hard working employees when I say that this is great achievement for all involved.”

Neale Kuperman, Chairman of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association said, “On behalf of the more than 400 dealers and our roughly 33,000 employees, the Greater New York Automobile Dealership Association and I want to thank Governor Cuomo, Speaker Silver, Majority Leaders Skelos and Klein, and our sponsors, Senator Libous and Assemblyman Gantt for their commitment to a strong franchised dealer system. This reaffirms the State’s long standing goal that cars sold through the dealer-franchise system serve the consumer and their best interests. This legislation will assist the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association and our commitment to providing strong customer service while we continue to grow the market for environmentally friendly zero emission vehicles.”

Diarmuid O’Connell, Vice President, Corporate Development, Tesla Motors, said, “We’d like to thank Governor Cuomo for his leadership in architecting an agreement whereby Tesla will be able to continue to sell vehicles in its five retail stores in New York State. Under the Governor’s leadership, Tesla, the New York franchise dealers and other interested parties were able to engage in a productive dialogue which resulted in a compromise that protects franchise dealers’ existing business while allowing Tesla to continue to pursue its mission of catalyzing the market for sustainable transportation. We also appreciate that many members of the Legislature were open to our message and supported a constructive solution. In particular, we are grateful for the support of Assemblyman David Buchwald, who represents a district in which three Tesla facilities are located. Tesla looks forward to a future in which it can continue to create jobs and invest in New York’s economy while accelerating the transition to sustainable transportation.”

“The country and New York need more clean energy solutions for transportation,” said Richard Schrader, the political and legislative director for NRDC NY. “It’s good for New York’s economy, consumers and environment that this legislation is keeping an electric car innovator in the state.”

Senator Tom Libous said, “It’s important that we protect auto dealers and their thousands of employees across New York but also welcome Tesla into the business community. I’m glad we could come to an agreement that works for Tesla, the New York State Automobile Dealers Association and the Greater New York State Automobile Dealers Association. As the Senate sponsor of this legislation, I appreciate their willingness to compromise and come to a resolution.”

Senator Joe Robach said, “I am happy to see that all involved parties were able to come to an agreement. The important thing, as with any major purchase, is that policies are in place to protect the consumers while allowing access to products. I applaud Governor Cuomo, Tesla Motors, the New York State Automobile Dealers Association and the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association for reaching an agreement that will benefit all parties, including the people of New York.”

Assemblyman David Gantt said, “This agreement is a great step forward not only for Tesla and the State’s auto dealers, but for the State’s consumers as well. Thanks to the collaborative effort of the Assembly, Governor Cuomo, Tesla, the New York State Automobile Dealers Association and the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association an agreement has been reached which benefits all New Yorkers. I will continue working with my colleagues to ensure the successful passage of this legislation.”

Please Complete Your NYSADA Economic Impact Survey

Included in this edition of The News is NYSADA’s “Economic Impact Survey” for the year 2013. The results from this survey help us demonstrate to our legislators how vital our industry is to the economy of New York State. NYSADA uses this information to show legislators the economic strength of franchised dealers across the state. For example, at Gold Club meetings information gathered from last year’s survey indicated franchised dealers were responsible for generating 18% of the state’s tax revenues. This impressed a number of legislators.

All of the information requested for the survey should be at hand, as dealerships prepare to file their tax returns. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and forward it to Auto Outlook, as soon as possible. (These surveys are strictly confidential, all analysis and reporting will be handled by Auto Outlook.) If you are a member of GNYADA and have filled out their Economic Impact Survey, please do not fill out NYSADA’s since this would simply duplicate the work for Auto Outlook. If you did not receive an Economic Impact Survey and you would like to fill one out, please contact the Association at (518) 463-1148 and speak with Ed Richardson (ext. 210).

 

Please Don't Use Anti-Road Safety Themes in Your Advertising

Recently, in New Jersey a franchised dealer advertised the size of a mini-van by stuffing a large number of teenagers into the vehicle and driving away. This advertisement was later pulled by the dealer because it violated road safety rules. NYSADA is asking all New York State dealers to set a positive example and not to run any advertising that could be considered violating the basic rules of road safety.

Thank you.
