Posted: Updated:
NORWALK -

An executive with the electric car maker Tesla says the company is determined to establish a larger presence in Connecticut, even if state lawmakers don't approve new legislation.

A new house bill would allow direct sales to consumers instead of a franchised dealership.

The company is considering adding as many as 10 galleries in the state, including ones in Norwalk, Westport, Fairfield, Danbury and Bridgeport.

Tesla currently has a storefront gallery in Greenwich.
