Tesla, the renowned electric car manufacturer owned by Elon Musk, is set to establish its manufacturing plant in India. This decision comes after a meeting between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Elon Musk during the latter’s visit to the United States. In preparation for this venture, Tesla has recently signed a 5-year agreement for a 5850 sq ft space in the B wing of Panchsheel Business Park, Pune. The monthly rent for this space is Rs 11.56 lakh, and the company has also deposited Rs 34.95 lakh as security for the duration of the agreement. Additionally, the company has been provided with parking space for 5 cars and 10 bikes.

Meanwhile, the Indian government recently rejected a proposal from China’s largest electric vehicle manufacturer BYD to establish a 1 billion manufacturing facility in India. This decision is attributed to the strict rules implemented by the government following the border conflict between Indian and Chinese soldiers in 2020. The government has previously rejected a similar investment proposal from Great Wall of China Motor, another rival of Tesla in the electric vehicle market.

The difficulties faced by both Great Wall Motor and BYD in entering the Indian electric vehicle segment are advantageous for Tesla. With these setbacks for its competitors, Tesla has a better chance to establish a strong presence in the Indian market.
