Tesla to Enter India by Next Year, Says Elon Musk

  • Highlights from Elon Musk’s interview with Recode

Musk was interacting with people on micro-blogging site Twitter when a user from India expressed disappointment over Tesla's absense in the country.

The Boring Company's plan to ease traffic is relatively simple, but transportation experts have criticized it.

Musk had shared these plans after a Twitter user claimed that Tesla and South Korean multinational conglomerate Samsung are together the largest producers of batteries for electric vehicles around the globe.

In an interview published by Re/code over the weekend, Musk acknowledged that the settlement places restrictions on what he is able to say in social media posts. It's expected to launch in January 2019.

Musk clarified the current situation in a tweet a few months back, citing challenges with adhering to the Indian government's regulations.

Similarly, in May, Musk had made apparent the challenges Tesla was facing when it came to executing the company's plans for India.

He had also signalled then that the company's Chief Financial Officer Deepak Ahuja will have the final say on when Tesla should be in India. But in the days after the settlement, Musk taunted the agency, tweeting, "Just want to that the Shortseller Enrichment Commission is doing incredible work".

Tesla is setting up a gigafactory in China this year, after which Nitin Gadkari, Transport Minister pointed out that "India will welcome Tesla and ready to help them with land and all types of help".

Elon Musk's SpaceX had launched the mannequin and the vehicle to space in February aboard the Falcon Heavy rocket, which many perceived as nothing but a publicity stunt by the Tesla boss to commemorate the inaugural voyage of the rocket. The business tycoon has already directed his service team to expand the company's overall market beyond North America, Eastern Europe, China, and Japan by the end of next year.

Following the launch of the Model 3 a year ago, Tesla repeatedly missed aggressive production targets for the new vehicle, blaming "manufacturing bottlenecks".
