  • India seeks EV transformation, in talks with Tesla for local manufacturing. Policy aims to reduce import taxes, boost domestic EV production
  • Minister, Piyush Goyal promises industry collaboration in crafting the policy to boost EV sector growth, aiming for investment attraction and domestic production expansion

India is poised to revamp its approach to electric vehicles (EVs) through a new policy designed to attract EV manufacturers and catalyze substantial investments in the sector.

The country’s Commerce Minister, Piyush Goyal, unveiled this plan on Wednesday, marking a pivotal moment in India’s path towards a cleaner and more sustainable automotive future. The Indian government is ready to usher in a wave of transformation, promising not only economic growth but also a greener tomorrow.

India’s newfound commitment to electrify its automotive landscape comes amid fervent discussions with the U.S. EV player, Tesla, regarding the potential establishment of a manufacturing facility in India.

Building upon recent reports by Reuters, which hinted at India’s intention to introduce an EV policy featuring reduced import taxes for automakers willing to invest in local manufacturing, Minister Goyal reaffirmed the government’s steadfast determination to revitalize the EV sector.

Minister Goyal assured that this policy will be developed in close consultation with industry leaders, emphasizing a collaborative approach aimed at driving the sector’s growth. “We will introduce a policy,” declared Goyal, highlighting the government’s eagerness to attract substantial investment and rapidly enhance domestic EV production.

With a focus on achieving economies of scale and adopting cutting-edge technologies, India aspires to fully unlock the potential of EV manufacturing.

The stakes have never been higher, particularly as Tesla, the world’s foremost EV manufacturer, actively explores opportunities in India. Senior executives from Tesla engaged in discussions with Minister Goyal in August, signaling the electric automaker’s keen interest in establishing a presence on Indian soil.

Tesla’s plans encompass the production of an affordable EV priced at $24,000, which is positioned to enhance the accessibility of EVs in the Indian market and beyond.

Furthermore, Minister Goyal revealed that Tesla intends to source components worth $1.7 billion to $1.9 billion from India this year alone. This substantial procurement follows the company’s $1 billion component purchase from the country in the previous year.

It serves as a testament to India’s growing significance in the global EV supply chain and underscores the nation’s potential as a key player in the electric vehicle revolution.
