Tesla already has four dealerships in Maryland. But the dealers could only show off the electric cars. According to law, Tesla dealers couldn’t actually sell Teslas.
As the legislative session neared its end, state lawmakers managed to clear the roadblock.

According to pluginsites.org, a bill that allows dealers to sell Tesla’s Model S directly passed the General Assembly in the closing hours of the session. The bill earned the support of Maryland’s Auto Dealers Association, and even has room for another two dealers to open up.
As WallStreetScope notes, however, General Motors dealerships still won’t be able to sell the electric cars. Better luck next year?
