Ellen Musk, the company’s chairman, has stated that the factory will be launched only after Tesla imports and sells cars in India, he said on Twitter. Full details can be found in this post.
- Tesla plans to start a sales-based Tesla factory after first importing and selling cars in India.
- He says the import tax levied by the Indian government is the highest in the world.
Tesla, the world’s No. 1 electric car maker, has been selling Tesla cars around the world. The company was the first in the world to make it clear to the world that future cars will only be electric cars.
The cars of this company are not only the best electric cars but also cars with many new types of technology and advanced features.
Although these cars are sold all over the world, these cars are not yet sold in India. The main reason for this is the difference between the Indian government and Tesla.
Sales of electric cars in India are also good. Tata is the No. 1 electric car company in India.
These Tata electric cars make up 90% of the electric cars sold in India. But Tesla had planned to sell Tesla cars in India in 2014. It was further extended that it was said that the 2016 Tesla Cars would be sold in India.
It is now 2022. Yet Tesla has not even sold a single car in India. The main reason for this is that Tesla plans to import and sell cars in India.
However, Tesla believes that the Indian government is levying higher import taxes, which will increase the price of Tesla cars, which will affect sales of Tesla cars.
To this end, it has repeatedly asked the Indian government to reduce the import duty. But the Indian government has been asked to start a factory in India and manufacture and sell cars here.
Due to this, Tesla cars are not yet sold in India. In addition to India, Tesla has set up another factory in China in conjunction with its Shanghai plant.
In addition, Tesla has opened factories in Germany and Indonesia.
In the case of India, Tesla plans to start the Tesla plant based on sales after first importing and selling cars in India.
Asked when the factory would open in India, Elon Musk said, “The factory will not open where Tesla cars are not allowed to be imported and serviced first.”But many luxury companies like BMW, BENZ, Audi are importing and selling their electric cars in India despite being expensive.
But Tesla CEO Ellen Musk refuses to agree. He says the import tax levied by the Indian government is the highest in the world.
This will not be the case until Tesla and the Government of India come to an end. All Indian customers have to wait for Tesla cars.
