Tesla Cars in India, has been electrifying the global automotive scene quite literally.
It Founded in 2003, the brand’s claim to fame was the Lotus Elise-based Tesla Roadster, launched in 2008.
The 2-door electric sports car offered a range of nearly 400km and a 0-100kmph time of under 4 seconds.
With over 2,400 sales to its name, the Roadster got the ball rolling for Tesla.
Since 2012, the carmaker has expanded its range to include the Model S family sedan and the Model X crossover, with the Model 3 sedan slated to join the family soon.
Tesla’s vehicles are producing at its factory in Fremont, California, capable of producing 2,000 cars a week.
The brand expects to make its entry into the Indian market in 2018.
With the first product launch being the Model 3 sedan.
Likely a rival to the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, and Jaguar XF.
Model Y and Model 3 accounted for 89% of the total Tesla vehicle sales in the third quarter of 2020.
Like other markets, the company will not appoint dealers and will be selling directly with a strong focus on digital sales.
It has been almost four years since the company first thought of India’s debut but had delayed citing infrastructure issues.
Hope this time Indian Tesla enthusiast get their hands on their dream cars.
Sources suggest that Tesla has achieved the desired numbers for Model S and Model X.
And the focus is to push the numbers for Model 3, and that’s how the Indian plan may help the company.
Tesla reportedly has been exploring options to set up a plant in India.
The performance of Model 3 is the same story, offering 500 km of range and a top speed of 162 mph while vrooming 0-60 mph in just 3.1 seconds.
In October, Elon Musk had commented on land plans in India next year, without giving too many details.
The first model to be launched in the country will be the Model 3, Tesla’s cheapest, with prices starting at Rs 5.5 million (or the US $ 74,739).
In recent weeks, information has appeared announcing the arrival of Tesla in the market of the third country with the most vehicles in the world.
The Republic of India is in the Top 3 of the nations with the highest number of cars, but it is the second number of inhabitants.
From the Twitter account of India’s Tesla Club, they have echoed the two licenses.
That Tesla has requested from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs of the Asian country to start its commercial activity.
Under the name of Tesla India Motors and Energy Private Limited and Tesla Energy Private Limited.
The American manufacturer lays the foundations to enter a market that offers multiple opportunities altogether.
It is still in the initial phase of electrification of a mobile fleet that reaches 120 million vehicles.
Currently, the cost of importing the Californian brand’s electric cars is almost double the vehicle’s base price.
So seeing them circulate the country is quite strange and reserved for a few privileged people with high purchasing power.
According to CEO Elon Musk, a Tesla, which this year took over as the world’s most valuable automaker , plans to land in India in 2021.
The Asian country’s automotive sector was deeply affected by the pandemic and saw its sales drop to zero in April.
But it continues to call for investments because it is one of the fastest-growing in recent years.
Musk’s statement is making in response to a Tesla Club India post on Twitter.
Asked about his interest in taking the company to the country, the executive assured that he would do so “next year, for sure.”
It is impossible to talk about business in Asia without mentioning China, the world’s most populous country.
Tesla hit the Chinese market in 2019 and has done well ever since.
In August alone, the automaker sold 11,000 Model 3s to Chinese consumers and planned to expand its production.
The production is already extensive. Currently, the Shanghai Gigafactory can assemble three cars a week, or 150 a year.
Tesla has already announced that it will increase annual production to 250 vehicles and install lines to produce components such as motors and batteries locally.
