Tesla Intends to Enter India

Tesla is sensing substantial electric car need in India. And its demand is going to increase further in the coming times.

However, if seen at present, Tesla is operating its factories in America, China and Germany. There are plans to set up a separate factory in India. Which is going to be done with the active efforts of the Government of India under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Apart from this, according to Bloomberg, despite the efforts of the government, the electric market in India is quite limited. Electric vehicles contributed 1.3% to total passenger vehicle sales last year.

The main reason for which is the high prices of electric vehicles and lack of adequate charging stations in the Indian market.

As a result of high import duties, Tesla currently avoids directly importing cars into India. And due to this, there is a possibility that its cost is going to reduce in the Indian market. It is expected that its price will be around $20,000 (16 lakhs).

Electric vehicles are going to be the future of India’s auto world in the coming times.
