The popularity of Tesla vehicles around the world continues to grow every year. The company is gradually trying to expand its presence in many countries. Now it has been noticed that Tesla will add Russian, Hindi, Greek, Croatian, and Finnish languages to their cars.
Hacker @greentheonly/Twitter posted some interesting information recently. During the next study of the car code, which he periodically does, Green discovered that the company was going to add new languages to the cars: Russian, Hindi, Greek, Croatian, and Finnish. He clarified that Croatian and Finnish are on the changelog, but all five are present and shared photos with evidence.

The adding of new languages is very good news for customers from these countries. At the moment, Tesla is already present in the markets of Greece, Croatia, and Finland, so the addition of these languages is logical. We also know that the company should enter the Indian market, presumably this year, so the appearance of Hindi is also expected. Nevertheless, the Russian language is unexpected.
The Russian interface will be convenient for residents of such countries as Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and a number of other countries of the former Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). It should be noted that so far Tesla is not present in any of these countries, although it has built several Superchargers in Kazakhstan.
In addition, in May, the CEO of the company Elon Musk hinted at Tesla's arrival in Russia. “I think we’re close to establishing a Tesla presence in Russia, and I think that would be great,” he said during the New Knowledge forum in Moskow. Although today residents of Russia, like other countries of the former CIS, do not show high interest in buying new electric vehicles, this may change with Tesla's arrival there. Since there are no Tesla stores, Superchargers, nor service centers in these countries, it is very difficult to assess the real interest of its citizens in the company's cars.
