Mumbai: Maharashtra state tourism and environment minister Aaditya Thackeray on Thursday tweeted about inviting Tesla to the state. This comes days after Telsa Chief, Elon Musk hinted at Tesla's entry into the Indian market. Although there are not many details about the company's official entry into the country, it looks like a lot of people are already excited.
In his tweet, Thackeray said he and industries minister Subhash Desai had a video call with Tesla executives earlier in the day to invite them to the state.
Thackeray further stated they are firmly committed to policy building and changes for sustainable development. He thinks that electric mobility supported by renewable energy is the way ahead.
Tesla has a successful run in the western market and if it arrives in India, then it will have a great stride in the Indian roads as well.
Tesla is also working hard to make its electric cars more affordable. Tesla chief Elon Musk promised over the next several years to slash battery costs in half with new technology and processes. People are eager to see how their cars are priced in the Indian market.
