In addition to showing off the new and affordable Tesla Model 3, the company is trying to gain support to pass new legislation that would allow Tesla to open a store in the Buffalo area.

Right now -- New York has a cap on how many stores a company can own in the state, but legislation being sponsored by several Western New York lawmakers would allow Tesla to open more than five stores. One would be in Buffalo.

The Tesla Model 3 is the most affordable electric car, starting at $35,000.
