Tesla Motors and its arrival in India have long been under discussion. Tesla’s entry into India is part of the government’s Make-in-India campaign. Bringing Tesla cars to India via Completely Built Units (CBU) route can be quite expensive. In such a situation, the company is setting up a manufacturing plant in India itself. The company can launch ‘Model 3’ as its first model. How much will it cost and how much will it cost in full charge, let’s know …
Which model will be the first in India?
After waiting for nearly five years, Tesla will debut with its popular model in India. The company may first launch the Model 3 (sedan), which is also the cheapest electric car from Tesla. The company is also preparing to give its car a mid-life update this year. However, the company has not made any official announcement regarding this.
The company Model 3 will be brought to India via the Completely Built Units (CBU) route and assembled in the country to keep its price low. In the US, the Model 3 is priced between Rs 25 – 40 lakh ($34,000 – 54,000. In India, its price can be between 40 – 55 lakh rupees ($54,000 – 75,000).
However, the Model 3 takes only 15 minutes to full charge. Once it will full charged, this car can travel more than 500 kilometers, or we can sey that it can run 500Km per charge. The top speed of the Tesla car is 162 km per hour.
What’s the reason behind launching model 3?
In India, the craze of SUV cars is increasing rapidly. Most manufacturers have already launched their products in the electric SUV segment, including Mercedes-Benz ‘EQC, Hyundai Kona and MG ZS EV, which is led by Electric Charge for their respective brands in India.
Tesla Model Y (SUV) is likely to be on the roadmap for India in future. Tesla may use the Model 3 to stand out from the crowd in its early stages. The Model 3 is quite different from other sedans in the market. The car is also much better in terms of space, storage and comfort.
