One legal controversy from before, EVs in dealer showrooms, is still a struggle for buyers looking to shop for an EV. The Sierra club has put together a report, based on mystery shopper experience, which highlights a number of negative experiences with trying to purchase, shop, or test-drive EVs at dealer showrooms. While some manufacturers (such as Tesla) scored highly, many other dealerships either provided a negative experience or refused to sell them.

This highlights a problem with trying to simply introduce new EVs into the current vehicle market model. Additional steps need to be taken to accommodate and showcase EV capabilities.
