Mumbai: The American EV giant is planning to set foot in India in 2021.

“The electric revolution in India might be gaining pace but we haven’t been that lucky when it comes to Tesla because the Elon Musk headed company hasn’t launched any electric car in India to date. But that is all set to change in 2021 as a sea of confirmations have headed our way, cementing the fact that it is indeed happening!”

Nitin Gadkari – the union minister for road transport and highways has revealed that after an arduously long wait, Tesla will enter the Indian market in ‘early 2021’.

He went on to state that Tesla will begin its India journey by setting up its own sales network, and will evaluate local assembly or manufacturing at a later date, based on market response. Reportedly, Tesla’s official booking order configurator for India will go live on their website from January next year. This was tweeted by Elon as a reply to Twitter handle Tesla Club India.
