Elon Musk’s brainchild, Tesla, has finally set its wheels on Indian terrain, ending years of eager anticipation. The buzz reignited when Carversal unveiled spy shots of the Tesla Model Y, discreetly stationed at Mahindra’s Pune Test Facility. These snapshots not only fuel hope but also paint a clearer picture of Tesla’s long-awaited Indian debut.
The story so far? For half a decade, Tesla’s Indian entry seemed like a distant dream, with hurdles like steep import taxes and the government’s insistence on a local manufacturing unit. But the narrative changed recently as Tesla warmed up to the Indian government’s terms, committing to a local manufacturing hub.
The freshly leaked images, rich in implications, hint that Tesla’s Indian journey might kick off with the celebrated Model Y. The spy shots prominently feature the Model Y Dual Motors variant, standing tall next to Mahindra’s XUV700 at Mahindra’s Pune facility.
Tesla’s India debut: As for the Model Y’s Indian debut, all signs point to a launch between Q2 and Q3 of 2024. And if you’re wondering about the price tag, the base Model Y might start around a cool ₹55 lakhs.
