I welcome Elon Musk to India and Karnataka and wish him all the very best," tweeted Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa recently.

As per the regulatory filings, the Indian unit will have three Directors - Vaibhav Taneja, Venkatrangam Sreeram, and David Feinstein. Vaibhav Taneja is the Chief Accounting Officer at Tesla. While David Feinstein is the Senior Director of Global Trade and New Market(finance). However, Venkatrangam Sreeram’s designation is still not clear.

Besides these, the company is also in talks with Maharashtra, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu regarding expansion of operations.

As for the deliveries, it might commence from the end of the first quarter of the financial year 2021-22. The entry-level sedan will fall in the price range of Rs 55 lakhs - Rs 60 lakhs (ex-showroom).
