Indian Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari told The Indian Express that Tesla will "begin operations" in India in early 2021.

This implies the start of official sales of Tesla electric vehicles and their service in India.

In addition, the minister noted that in case of successful sales, the company does not exclude the assembly of its electric vehicles in India.

Tesla opened its first overseas factory in Shanghai, China earlier this year. In addition, Tesla is currently building two more new factories: in the vicinity of Berlin, as well as in Austin, Texas.

According to unofficial information, Tesla will start selling its most affordable model, Model 3, in India, taking orders from Indian buyers could begin in a few weeks.

The sale will most likely be carried out directly by Tesla itself, as is done in most other countries in the world.
