Time and again, Musk has hinted at bringing the electronic luxury car in India. With the launch of Tesla model 3 in April last year, Musk had promised to bring the car to India in a couple of years.

He had also expressed interest in opening Tesla Gigafactories at multiple locations across the globe, with India being one of the preferred spots.

However, the self-made entrepreneur is famous for being overly-ambitious with his projects and especially their deadlines. It is a matter of debate whether Musk will be able to deliver on his promises of bringing the cars to the country within this year’s summer.

It will be interesting to see how the futuristically automated car will perform in India. Autopilot being its biggest USP, there are chances that the models to be launched in India will not be carrying it. If all the features are kept intact, Tesla might face some of its toughest challenges till date on the Indian roads.

A Tesla manufacturing unit stationed in India will come much easier though, owing to PM Modi’s 'Make in India' initiative. The 'Make in India' incentives for the MNC’s make it much easier for them to setup and operate their units in India.
