It’s been a year since Tata Nexus EV, Tata’s all-electric product, went on sale. According to TOI, the car sold 3,000 units over a one-year holding period. Charging stations are not yet a common sight on Indian roads, but a slow shift to increase the number of electric vehicle options seems imminent. When talking about electric cars, Tesla is a natural reference in almost every conversation. Tesla, now headed by the world’s wealthiest man, Elon Musk, has recently confirmed the opening of a manufacturing centre in the country. Owning a Tesla in India is still a premium issue, as it is still at least a few years away. For now, let’s take a look at Tesla pricing in India.
- Model 3 – Expected price between INR 55 and 60 lakhs
- Model S – Expected price INR 1.5 crore
- Model X – Expected price between INR 60 lakhs and 90 lakhs
Tesla Model 3 launch in India
Tesla’s best-selling and most affordable Model 3 to date is imported in large quantities and sold directly in India. Since Tesla does not have a manufacturing base yet, it will import Completely Built Units (CBU), which will result in a slight increase in price. But with that in mind, there is still a difference of 55 to 60 rupees. The car can be fully charged in just 15 minutes, has a mileage of 500 km and a top speed of 162 kmph.
Tesla Model S launching in India
After the affordable Model 3, the Tesla Model S will debut in the Indian market according to business standards. It will be offered in three variations, 75D, 100D and P100D, with a little premium. The price of this car is estimated at 1.5 rupees. At that price, it will automatically become the first in India’s luxury sedan category and will face fierce competition with BMW, Audi and others.
Tesla Model X may launch in India
The question of Tesla’s Model X coming to India still has a cloud of uncertainty. That said, the 7-seater crossover SUV has many new upgrades that make it an even more attractive option. According to CarDekho, the modified Tesla Model X will cost between $ 89,990 and $ 119,990 and will soon be in India.
