The number of electric vehicle stores in the state is now limited to five, all operated by Tesla, the company headquartered in Palo Alto, California.

The legislation Environmental Advocates and a second group, the Alliance for Clean Energy, is promoting is sponsored by Sen. Todd Kaminsky, D-Long Island, and Assemblywoman Patricia Fahy, D-Albany.

Their bill argues the limits on manufacturer-run stores has made it onerous for upstate New Yorkers to get an electric vehicle of their choice.

"Due to overwhelming demand, these stores are all located downstate, leaving upstate residents without convenient and accessible locations to purchase zero-emission vehicles and preventing any additional electric vehicle companies from opening stores in the state," the legislation states.
