Tesla to Launch Model 3 at 55 lakh in India by June 2021
Tesla to Launch Model 3 at 55 lakh in India by June 2021. Pre-Bookings to Open in January 2021 at INR 75,000
According to a report, Tesla has finally made up its mind regarding coming to India next year. Tesla will launch in India with CBU imported cars starting with the Model 3. It is claimed that Tesla will start bookings for its Model 3 in India as early as next month while the first deliveries will start from June or slightly around the middle of next year.
The car that is chosen to launch the Tesla brand in India is the Model 3 which is the most affordable car in the Tesla range along with being the most suitable car for India. It is an entry level luxury sedan that will compete with the likes of the Mercedes C-Class to the BMW 3 Series and others. Tesla will launch cars via the CBU route and will not most likely have plans to set up a factory to make them. Tesla will most likely import cars from China. Company CEO Elon Musk did tweet earlier that Tesla is for sure coming to India by 2021 so this news does make sense.
Another important bit is that the EV carmaker does not sell cars via the conventional route as instead it will sell cars online only. India will get the updated Model 3 facelift while we can expect the range to be 500km or more. We might get the standard range model though there are also higher spec versions called as Long range and performance models also. The base version makes around 300 bhp.
We expect Tesla to price the Model 3 with duties and more but being an electric car it might get some cuts. However expect prices to be near Rs 55- 60 lakh at the least or slightly lower or higher depending on the trim launched in India. In India currently there are only a few models being sold which are full EVs while in the luxury space it is only the Mercedes EQC which is sold in India.
