Are you looking forward to it that Tesla will enter the Southeast Asian market in 2021?
In addition to completing the opening and production of the Shanghai factory this year, Tesla founder Elon Musk also recently gave the next step on Twitter, confirming that he will enter India next year and attack the world’s fifth-largest auto market.
The next step is unexpectedly revealed because in the Tesla Club India Twitter page, two “India wants Tesla” and “India love Tesla” T-shirts are used to shout to Elon Musk, hoping that Tesla electric cars can be in India as soon as possible On sale. Elon Musk also responded to “Next year for sure” in the post, unexpectedly announcing that he would enter the Indian market next year.
It is understood that if Tesla goes on sale in India next year, it will be in line with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policy to promote electric vehicles. Especially under the influence of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the Indian automobile manufacturing industry will be greatly affected, and even new car sales will be zero in April. Therefore, Tesla’s entry into the Indian market is quite welcome.
However, at the same time, the Indian government also intends to establish an electric vehicle battery production base in the local area. The Indian government also provide up to 4.6 billion U.S. dollars (approximately NT$132.4 billion) in subsidies, impose 5%-15% import taxes on batteries, and other measures. Reduce the proportion of battery imports by 2030.
Tesla, an American car brand, has become more and more popular in recent years. Whether it is in the United States or countries such as China, Tesla’s sales are very good. At the same time, Tesla is also constantly developing new technologies to upgrade its car models. That day, Tesla boss Elon Musk revealed that Tesla wants to enter the Southeast Asian market in 2021!
Tesla’s first Southeast Asian target is at the Indian market. This is because Indian Prime Minister Modi is increasingly focusing on promoting the use, promotion. Moreover, the manufacturing of electric vehicles, which is a good thing for Tesla. In fact, as early as 2016, Tesla revealed that it hopes to enter the Indian market in the future. At the same time build a new Tesla development centre in India. Simply put, Tesla will CKD in the Indian market!
Elon Musk is already discussing with the Indian Prime Minister. Once Tesla enters the Indian market, a large number of charging stations will be built. At the same time, Tesla will strive to provide more electrified resources to promote the popularization of the Indian market. Reducing dependence on oil, of course, is also environmentally friendly! It’s just that consumers in the Indian market are actually more inclined to “small and cheap” cars. Tesla’s entry into the Indian market is to be a test!
In any case, Elon Musk personally stated that he will enter the Indian market in 2021, that is, next year. Whether Malaysia will introduce Tesla together in the future, we will wait and see! Are you looking forward to Tesla’s arrival?
