Elon Musk says Tesla is not yet in India due to 'challenges with the government'

“Still working through a lot of challenges with the government,” Musk said in a Twitter post early Thursday in Asia, replying to a user who’d asked if there was any update on Tesla’s launch in in South Asian nation.

Elon Musk has needed to sell Tesla Inc. cars in India as soon as 2019. After three years, the U.S. electric-vehicle pioneer isn’t actually a lot nearer. Tesla CEO Musk and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration have been in talks for a really long time, however conflicts over a nearby factory and the nation’s import obligations of as much as 100 percent have prompted a stalemate. The public authority has requested that the EV producer increase nearby acquirement and share itemized fabricating plans; Musk has demanded lower taxes so Tesla can get going by selling imported vehicles at a less expensive cost in a budget-conscious market.

In October, an Indian minister said he had asked Tesla to avoid selling China-made cars in the country, and urged the automaker to manufacture, sell and export vehicles from a local factory. India, with a population comparable to China, is a highly promising market for EV makers, but the country’s roads are still dominated by cheap, no-frills cars made by the local units of Suzuki Motor Corp. and Hyundai Motor Co.

Tesla will also face competition from other foreign players, including Mercedes-Benz, which announced Wednesday it’ll roll out a locally assembled EQS — the electric version of its flagship S-Class sedan — in India by the fourth quarter.

Though India has vowed to turn net carbon zero by 2070 and the government is looking to bolster the sale of electric vehicles, its green transition is still at a nascent stage.
