Tesla, the first name that comes to mind after hearing electric cars is finally coming to the bumpy and pothole ridden roads of India.
A team of students of Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India have been selected for hyperloop pod design and the team got to meet Tesla’s C.E.O and Founder, Elon Musk and one of the student from that team asked Mr. Elon Musk about Tesla’s plan to come to India and he fortunately answered that Tesla will hit the roads of India next year.
Elon even told the team that the reason behind Tesla taking so much time to come to India is the rules and policies put forward by the Indian government. He even tweeted about Tesla coming to India last year. Even though electric Cars from huge carmakers have started coming to India like Hyundai Kona and Maruti will also release it’s electric car later this year so it would be great to see how these companies compete in a developing country.
The question here is will tesla launch an affordable car for India and other such markets and if not then will we see a price reduction in the car lineup which Tesla already has. Elon Musk recently said that the the Tesla cars will not be that affordable due to all the import taxes but Indian government is constantly amending those rules for electronic cars. All we can do is hope for the best.
