Tesla has also shown interest in India, the world’s fifth largest car market. However, Tesla is facing problems regarding the production of cars here. Tesla says that it will import cars completely made in China into India. However, the Indian government has expressed its contradiction on this proposal of Tesla. The Indian government says that if Tesla wants to sell cars in India, it should manufacture it in India.

Tesla wants to import fully finished cars in India. The company had also demanded from the Government of India to reduce the import duty (tax) on its cars imported from outside India. However, the Government of India clarified its view on this and refused to reduce the import duty. Currently, 100% tax is levied on such imports in India.

Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has already clarified India’s vision on this issue. He had said that the Government of India cannot change its tax policy for any one company. If Tesla wants to sell its cars in India, it must comply with the taxes and rates set by the government. Gadkari had said that if Tesla is ready to manufacture in India, then only it will be a participant in the concessions given by the government.
