As automakers in the country are working on the electric technology, we have a pioneer brand, Tesla planning for its India debut in summer this year. The fresh revelation made by Elon Musk, Tesla CEO has caught the attention of the automotive industry. US-based electric carmaker leads the category with most advanced technology cars which will soon find place in the Indian market.

Based on fresh updates, we believe that the automaker might announce the brand’s debut in the country in second quarter of this year. However, it might take a year or more for Tesla cars to hit our roads as the brand is yet to set up charging stations, as well as sales and service stations in the country. Though the company has not detailed its business plan for India, we believe that the new outlets might initially be set up in major cities like Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi.

Tesla has also been looking forward to set up its manufacturing facility in India. During his visit to the Tesla facility last year, Nitin Gadkari, minister of road, transport and highways offered land for Tesla setup situated close to major ports to export cars to South and South East Asian countries. Localisation will also help Tesla to price its products smartly in a competitive market like ours, as well as contribute strongly towards make in India initiative.

Though the company might announce its debut in the country soon, the cars will take about a year or more to be rolled out as the company is yet to overcome the logistic challenges. More details on its future plans will be known in the coming days.
