  • Tesla plans to start sale of Model 3 in India
  • Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed this through Twitter
  • Tesla is also considering to built a new Gigafactory in Asia

We've been waiting to see Tesla make its way to India and it's been about 4 years now, since the company mentioned that it wishes to make its mark in the Indian market. With the launch of the Model 3 it looked like India would certainly get the car and also see the brand launch itself as a formidable electric vehicle player. But none of that ever came to fruition. Now, again, there's some hope for the brand coming to the country. Replying to Arvind Gupta's tweet, which seeked answers to Tesla coming to India, for he had booked a Model 3 4 years ago,  Tesla CEO, Elon Musk replied "Sorry, should hopefully be soon!".

Of course, there's no timeline given yet, but let's hope that it does come sooner. India is on Musk's radar even for a Gigafactory but none of this has yet been confirmed by the carmaker. Currently, the carmaker is focusing on building a new facility in Berlin, Germany. It is also planning to set up a second factory in Austin, Texas to serve the East Coast.

Presently, the electric car manufacturer is offering five models in the home market that includes the Model S, Model 3, Model X, Roadster and Model Y. Talking about the Tesla Model 3, the electric car is offered in three variants - Performance, Long Range AWD & Standard Plus. The performance variant is capable of hitting 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds whereas the standard & long-range variants take 5.3 seconds and 4.4 seconds, respectively.
