- Adar Poonawalla Invites Musk to produce Tesla automobiles in India.
- The initiation came shortly after Nishant Prasad, in charge of of establishing Tesla's supercharger network in India updated hi profile.
- Musks interest to launch Tesla in India seems to have shifted now.
Shortly after, Nishant Prasad, in charge of establishing Tesla’s supercharger network in India updated his Linkedin profile to Charging Operations Lead-APAC, Indian vaccine king, Adar Poonawalla has advised Tesla chief and the world’s richest man Elon Musk to invest in India for high-quality, large-scale manufacturing of Tesla cars.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Poonawalla wrote: “Hey Elon Musk, just in case you don’t end up buying Twitter, do look at investing some of that capital in India for high-quality large-scale manufacturing of Tesla cars.” “I assure you this will be the best investment you’ll ever make,” he added.
The move by Musk-led Tesla appears to be a retaliation as the Indian government has not accepted the demand by Musk to reduce import duties on Tesla vehicles. Musk has been eyeing the Indian market for a while, however, the automaker has stated that they have no plans to produce their premium electric cars in India but to import from China and sell it directly to customers.
