Tesla is actively entering India, where there is a huge market for the development of the company. Many of the richest people in the country have been waiting for Tesla to come here for several years and it seems soon they will be able to order their long-awaited cars. The name 'India' has appeared on the Tesla website source code, indicating that the order configurator will be open soon.
@TeslaClubIN/Twitter reports that they have found that India now appears in Tesla website source code. According to information received from them, this code change occurred on February 14. The country name and language of the order configurator are displayed in the code where the names of countries and languages of the order configurator are indicated for all countries where Tesla has already officially entered the market. This is a strong indication that an order configurator in India will be launching soon.
At the end of December 2020, Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, in the Indian Express Idea Exchange Program, confirmed that Tesla will begin selling electric vehicles in India in early 2021, with first deliveries by June. This information is consistent with new observations and it is expected that the order configurator on the company's website will be open soon.
All cars will be CBU (Completely Built-Up) and will be imported via sea route into India. The companies that do not have either an assembly plant or a platform for assembly, provide cars to the customers only by CBU. It is reported that Tesla will initially be able to deliver only 2,500 units. At the moment, we are talking only about Tesla Model 3, the company's most affordable car.
