Tesla - India launch in 2021?

Elon Musk in response to a post by the Unofficial Tesla India Club has indicated that a 2021 launch in India is very possible. This comes right after reports that Tesla is opening an R&D center near Bengaluru.

With a lot of focus from GoI on electrification and coupled with what can only be called a growing EV ecosystem, A well positioned product from Tesla could give that much needed push to galvanise the Auto industry.

And given India problems with a reliable and stable power grid, their portfolio of products built around energy storage could disrupt another industry as well.

If Tesla and Elon are serious about India, we have a lot to look forward to in the coming years.


It can be a game changer for Indian car industry this news will atleast make some already established manufactures to push in Evs in the 12-15 lac range. Tesla with its 20k-25k Ev in india can really set the Ev ball rolling ,can’t wait my timer is on for Collector’s edition then Ev May be Tesla.
