In the month of October, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter that he is going to enter India in the year 2021. In such a situation, the company is now slowly accelerating the work.
Tesla Model 3
Tesla Inc. is looking for a location to open its showroom in three cities in India. For this, the company has also hired executives so that Tesla can easily enter India. The electric car maker registered in India as a local company in January. The company wants to import the Model 3 here in India, which can start by the middle of this year.
With market capitalization, the world’s most valued automaker is now looking for commercial properties where it needs 20,000- 30,000 square feet of space. The company wants to open its showrooms here in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. Tesla has chosen Manuj Khurana, former executive of investment promotion body Invest India, here. Khurana’s job will be to handle policy and business and focus on the development of Tesla in the country. However, Tesla has not given any statement on this matter here at the moment.
In the month of October, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter that he is going to enter India in the year 2021. In such a situation, now it has been proved that the Tesla has accelerated the work due to the space for the showroom and the hiring of people.
Tesla may face problems here
If we talk about some luxury car showrooms, in metro cities, they are in the range of 8000 to 10,000 square feet. But most such showrooms are small. In such a situation, the supply of rear estate space in India is quite short. That is, if a Tesla has to take a big place in the cities of New Delhi and Mumbai, then the company may have to pay more money here.
If you have seen Tesla showrooms in the world, then most showrooms look like experience centers. In such a situation, the company is also focusing on opening such showrooms in India.
EV sales are increasing continuously in India
India sold a total of 2.4 million cars last year, of which 5,000 were electric. Whereas in China the same figure reached 1.25 million which were electric. Tesla has decided to import vehicles here. At the same time, Road and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said last month that the government is ready to reduce the production cost of those companies here if they do local manufacturing of their products.
What does it take to open a car showroom?
To open a car showroom, you first have to choose the place and its rent. For this, you also have to take permission from the local authority and the state government for the rest of the work. Here you have to fill many forms in which insurance, tax, business information, bank account, legal and local license are required.
Here you have to tell completely about your business, what is your need, how many cars will remain in the showroom. What will be the area of the service center. What work will be done there. According to estimates, it costs many crores of rupees. On the other hand, if there is a new company i.e. Tesla which will enter India for the first time, then it may have to loose its pockets a lot.
