Tesla: Nitin Gadkari says Tesla should not import cars from China for domestic sales | India Business News

NEW DELHI: American electric car manufacturer Tesla Inc. is welcome to set up shop in India, make cars there for sale and export them, but is not allowed to import cars from China, the Minister of Transport said on Tuesday.
“Making in China and selling here is not a good idea,” he said. Nitin Gadkarisaid during an intergovernmental conference.
Tesla is desperate to import and sell its electric vehicles in India, after lobbying New Delhi officials for nearly a year to cut tariffs, which the company’s billionaire CEO Elon Musk says is among the highest in the world.
But its efforts are in a stalemate as Tesla has not unveiled a firm plan to invest in India, a move that would be in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Make in India” vision to boost local production and create jobs.
