This statement was made by the founder of the company Elon Musk, responding to comments from Internet users on his Twitter account.

According to Tesla CEO, the American electric car maker may enter the Indian car market as early as next year. So Elon Musk reassured the fans of the brand from Tesla Club India, giving a response to their message. If this really happens, then Tesla will begin to conquer India at the most opportune moment for this.

We will remind, the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi pays more and more attention to the promotion and production of electric cars in the country. This, in part, writes Reuters. So, the Indian government is ready to offer companies that create enterprises in the country for the production of batteries for electric cars, benefits in the amount of 4.6 billion dollars.

If electric vehicles become widespread, India could cut import costs by $ 40 billion by 2030. A 5 percent tax on the import of certain types of batteries, including for electric cars, will be in effect until 2022.
Then it will rise to 15%, which should spur local production.

Meanwhile, police in Indiana talked about the Tesla Model 3 company car. The car paid for itself in almost a year compared to models with classic internal combustion engines. Also an important advantage is the quiet operation of the car.
