Elon Musk Had A Little Something To Say To Our Indian Government On Twitter

In The News

We have craving to see a Tesla on Indian streets for a long time now, but the Elon Musk led company has not able to do the same up until now. A certain Twitter user asked Elon Musk as to when we will finally see Tesla cars in India, and Musk quickly pointed out that laws regarding import duties would make these cars unaffordable in India, and hence be a bad business proposition.

For any Tesla, above the cost of INR 27 lakhs, an import duty of 100% will be applied, doubling the cost of the car.

Tesla Club India soon joined the conversation, with a little thought of their own, but Musk responded to that as well citing why that wasn’t a possibility either.
