Tesla’s chief executive officer Elon Musk said that Tesla will enter Indian market in 2021. He said this while replying to a Twitter query and said that Tesla will enter India “next year for sure”.

Last year, Musk had tweeted that high duties on vehicles imported as completely built units (CBUs) in India prevented tesla from entering the Indian market. Low per capita income and lack of infrastructure for EVs were also other factors.
