Solar EVs are ‘absolutely’ the future for eco-friendly vehicles: Steve Fambro
Apetra Motors co-founder and CEO Steve Fambro discusses the electric vehicle industry and explains why solar-powered EVs are the next generation of eco-friendly cars.
Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves signed legislation on Tuesday restricting electric car manufacturers from selling vehicles in person unless they open franchised dealerships.
Reeves enacted House Bill 401 into law, which was introduced by Republican Rep. Trey Lamar, despite calls from some fellow GOP members to veto it.
The law will force electric car companies to sell vehicles through franchises, instead of company-owned stores.
"Almost 200 small businesses in communities across our state are seeking assurances that big manufacturers can’t just destroy their businesses. That’s fair!" the governor said in a statement posted to social media.
