Tesla has finally entered India after years of in-and-out. The US electric vehicle giant has got itself registered as Tesla India Motors and Energy Pvt Ltd with the Registrar of Companies (RoC) in Bengaluru. Vaibhav Taneja, Venkatrangam Sreeram and David Jon Feinstein have been appointed as directors of Tesla India.
This comes after Union Minister Nitin Gadkari last month announced that Tesla would hit the Indian shores in early 2021 with direct sales model. The EV company will also set up a research and development centre in Bengaluru.
With the announcement of the EV maker's entry in the country, social media users have been overwhelmed. They have flooded the social platforms with various memes and jokes about the Indian road conditions and how Tesla's auto pilot mode would work here.
Though some Twitterati were filled with hopes of saving up and buying a Tesla soon, others speculated that if stuck in traffic jams or pot holes, Tesla's algorithms would face serious challenges here.
