Now this company is ready to hit the market scene and plans to start bookings after nearly 4 years. The introduction of such EV makers will help boost the Indian economy and help in keeping the environment green. New Technologies in 2021 Will Be Innovative And Virus Friendly Too
The first model to be introduced is the Tesla Model 3, and this premium edition is expected to cost around 60-70 lakh rupees (ex-showroom). The deliveries from the automakers plan to commence later in the year only.
Tesla is not likely to collaborate with any distributors and other showrooms, as the company plans on promoting itself through digital sales, and plans to work independently. The business model implemented in all other active countries like Australia, Europe, North America, Hong Kong, and China will be followed in India as well.
