After Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted out that Tesla electric vehicles are coming to India ‘next year for sure,’ the nation’s transport minister Nitin Gadkari has confirmed that it’s indeed the case.
There is at the moment no official word for when Tesla intends to make its India debut. The reviews suggest that Tesla Model 3 would be the first electric car to reach in the country. While Gadkari suggests the corporate will launch its operations in India in early 2021, an Economic Times report says gross sales won’t kick-off till the second half of the year.
Also, Tesla will initially import the Model 3 for sale in India, so you may easily expect the price to be around Rs. 55 lakhs. This price range of electric cars, nonetheless, starts at Rs. 28 lakhs within the US. The firm has already seen a myriad of Indian buyers register their interest for $1000 back in 2016. But, they’ve been left high and dry with no launch window insight.
Now, Elon Musk and India’s transport minister Nitin Gadkari have confirmed that Tesla’s electric vehicles will arrive in India in the next year. So yeah, we will probably get our hopes up again. We will keep you posted on Tesla Model 3’s India launch plans. Stay tuned for more information.
