Tesla is one of the worlds biggest manufacturer of Electric Vehicles In India also there is a large no of fans of Tesla When a lot of people asked on twitter that when will Tesla come to India? Elon Musk Tweeted Well, 2019 is gone, now we need to see whether or not Tesla will Enter the Indian Market in 2020. Tesla produces the most efficient and the fastest electric cars in the world India has kept a target that …. So the question is Why one the world biggest and most innovative company, Tesla is not coming to such a big automobile market like India. Tesla’s Electric Vehicle is available in almost every other big automobile market like……. so why not in India?
Today India And China Both Of them Are facing a very big problem And the problem is of Polluted cities When Ever we think of polluted cities we get the notion of vechiles Vehicles are responsible for 40% of the pollution caused in cities. But there’s a solution to this problem And that is to make a transition from petrol and diesel vehicles to electric vehicles. China has understood this very well but it’s taking some time for us. Almost half of the electric vehicles in the world are in China World’s 99% of the electric scooters And 99% of the electric buses are in China.
It’s not like that India doesn’t have any electric vehicles . In India, people only like to buy those cars which are not very expensive to maintain and ride,& the price of the car should be in their capacity. That’s the reason that today also the Indian market is being dominated by Deisel and petrol Vehicles .The technology used in Deisel and petrol cars is very old, so that’s the reason that today these cars have become so affordable .
On the other side Electric Vehicle is a new alternative in today’s market just like the engine is the most important component in deisel and petrol vechiles similarly, in an electric vehicle, the most important component used in an electric vehicle is the battery. How much distance will your car run after one full charge depends on the battery of the car. Today the battery manufacturing technology is evolving rapidly lots of efforts are made to increase their efficiency and power, but still today also the price of these batteries is very high that’s why the main pitfall for electric vehicles is that it’s fu***in Expensive .
The cheapest car made by Tesla is Tesla Model 3, priced at $35,000 that way beyond the budget of an average Indian consumer And if you think that not that much expensive then, let me tell you that, the import duties to import this car to India is not included in this We will talk about import duties in a while Tesla is not available in India right now, so let’s talk about the electric car sold in India Mahindra e-Verito. It is the most popular electric car sold in India priced at around $18,000 which takes around 11hrs to be fully charged.
After one full charge Its because today the batteries used in Tesla cars are the most efficient & highly energy-dense A lot of companies like …. Are far behind tesla in this technology .With the help of Japanese company Panasonic Tesla is manufacturing its batteries Along with this Tesla has also made huge investments in Research& Development and in its manufacturing plants. And so Tesla is a leading the market of Electric Vehicles .The future of electric vehicles in India is still a bit doubtful And no significant development is made in the battery manufacturing industry of India .
Maruti Suzuki was supposed to launch the electric version of wagonR But now the company has dropped that plan The first Tesla factory outside the USA was built in Shangai, China The plan was to make this factory in India but later it was changed to China You guys have probably seen video of Elon musk Where he is dancing in One of the Tesla events held in China .Tesla didn’t get the kind of ecosystem for electric vehicles in India which it got in China. Tesla is very popular in China as compared to India And it was one of the reasons that Elon Musk choose China Some Statistics about Indian Automobile Market So the market share of electric vehicles in India is around And in this also there is one problem that In India, people don’t have many choices while buying an electric vehicle In India, there are only a few counted electric vehicle cars are available Out of which only a few of them have been somewhat commercially successful .
If you wanna buy a Tesla Model 3 in India For that, you have to pay a fee to the govt. of India Which is called Import duties Elon Musk said that the import duties is almost 100% which is extremely high which makes it unaffordable Which means that if you wanna drive a $35,000 Tesla in India you have to invest more that $70,000 which is way too expensive that’s why Tesla ignored the Indian market .And has given more importance to other global markets .To increase the sales of Electric Vehicles in India the govt. and the automobile companies have to make a collective effort to support the electric vehicles we need to develop the infrastructure And along with this , the most important We need to develop the trust of people on electric vehicles .
In October 2019 TATA launched Tigor EV And In January 2020 TATA launched the electric version of TATA Nexon And now what we have to see is weather or not these cars will get popular And now if we Indian startups in the field of electric vehicles And this company is slowly gaining momentum in the market .As Electric vehicles will get more and more popular in India it will be most beneficial for the people of the country. Every Year India Imports around $90-$100 billion worth of crude oil For comparison, the entire education budget of India is around $14 Billion If not entirely but only by some amount if we are able to decrease the bill of oil import then it will have a very big impact Along with this, the taxpayer’s money will stay inside the country rather than going out .
