Tesla ‘hoping’ to launch in India in summer 2017, says Elon Musk

It looks like this year we will see Tesla on Indian roads this summer. Tesla CEO Elon  Musk has hinted that potential India launch while responding to a Twitter question.


Unfortunately, there are no more details about the India launch plans as of now. Last year in April, Musk had unveiled its Tesla Model 3 electric sedan and said that it will come to India along with Brazil, South Africa, South Korea, New Zealand, Singapore and Ireland. The Model 3 pre-order page lets you book a Tesla by paying a $1,000 (Rs. 66,400 approx.) via a credit card and this is a refundable deposit in case you decide not to buy.

Musk had previously confirmed that the car would come with an India-wide supercharger network. For those unaware, Supercharging is a standard feature that can charge Tesla cars from 0 to 100 percent in roughly 75 minutes and are currently offered free of cost to those who own Tesla cars. Model 3 is the most affordable car in the Tesla line-up and is a smaller hybrid of the Model S and X.
