Tesla hoping to launch in India this summer, says Elon Musk


In response to a question from an apparent Tesla fan, who asked, "eagerly waiting for Tesla to launch in India. If so then When?"

Musk announced the semi past year in his ambitious "Master Plan, Part Deux" message about Tesla.

Over the weekend, ninety-seven companies, including Apple, Airbnb, Facebook, Google, Intel, Netflix, Snap and Uber Technologies, already filed an impassioned legal brief, stepping up the industry's growing opposition to the policy. And SpaceX will have more missions in February. That said, there is also no clarity whether charging would indeed be free for their users in India.

"In December, I agreed to join the Presidential Advisory Forum to provide feedback on issues that I think are important for our country and the world", Musk said in a statement.

However, that enthusiastic rally was short-lived.

Since the cost of EVs is significantly higher than their petrol/diesel counterparts, it makes very little sense to introduce any more EVs in the compact & ultra-compact segments. This is coming from the Society of Indian Automotive Manufacturers (SIAM). That puts it right next to the Chevy Bolt, a similar hatchback that sells for a similar price, but without many of Tesla's much-touted autonomous driving capabilities.

But those holding out for a heavy-duty truck will have to wait until everything surrounding the Tesla Model 3 starts dying down.

Tesla won't offer a Model 3 100 kWh version, Elon Musk has confirmed, dashing hopes for a big-battery version of the upcoming electric vehicle.

Tesla seems all set to enter the Indian market sometime in the second half of this year. The CEO had previously confirmed that the future owners of the electric vehicle will be powered with a supercharger network that would be available nationwide.

Back in September of 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had visited Tesla Motors' Silicon Valley plant.
