Tesla is closing its retail stores and going to an online-only sales model.




This sounds crazy, but it might actually work.




And even if Tesla fails, that could be part of the master plan.



Just over a week ago, Tesla announced the arrival of its long-awaited $35,000 Model 3 sedan — but also revealed that it would close nearly all its retail locations and move to online-only sales.
The second part was greeted with shock and jeers, but Tesla is serious. And the move could be brilliant.
I'll admit that I didn't think so at first. Tesla doesn't use franchised dealers, as every other major manufacturer selling in the US does. Instead, Tesla favors direct sales and has met stiff resistance from auto dealers in a number of states (laws governing car sales are state-by-state, as Tesla has been given permission to do direct sales in some of them).
