Production in Germany for Indian Market

Exporting Right-Hand Drive Cars

The electric carmaker has initiated production of right-hand drive vehicles at its German plant for export to India. This move aligns with India’s recent reduction of electric vehicle import taxes to 15% for automakers investing a minimum of $500 million and establishing a factory.

Anticipated Meeting with Modi

Investment Announcement Expected

Elon Musk is anticipated to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his two-day visit to India. Discussions are expected to include investment announcements and potential collaborations. Tesla executives have been scouting locations and engaging with real estate developers to expedite showroom construction for a potential launch in 2024.

Market Dynamics and Growth Potential

Electric Vehicle Market in India

Despite slower growth in Tesla’s main markets, India presents significant growth potential for electric vehicles. With EVs comprising only 2% of India’s total car sales in 2023, the government aims to increase this share to 30% by 2030. Tesla’s entry into India aligns with these ambitions and reflects the increasing demand for electric vehicles in the country.
