The day is not far when the price of all electric vehicles in the country will be lower than that of petrol vehicles, the Road Transport and Highways Minister said at an event here on Monday.
“If Tesla manufactures electric cars in India, they will also benefit,” he said.
Gadkari had earlier said on April 26 that “there is no problem” if Tesla is ready to manufacture its EVs in India, but the company should not import cars from China.
He had said in the Raisina Dialogue, “If Elon Musk (Tesla’s CEO) is ready to manufacture in India, there is no problem…come to India, start manufacturing, India is a big market, they export from India.” can do.”
Last year, the heavy industry ministry told Tesla that the company must start manufacturing its electric vehicles in India before the government can consider any tax concessions.
