A few Tesla test units have been regularly navigating through local roads in India. Still, the US-based EV maker has yet to make any serious moves toward local production.
Earlier this year, Musk noted that a Tesla factory in India might be possible if Tesla were to succeed with imported vehicles.
As per the report, some sources stated that Tesla requested to reduce the import duties of vehicles sent to India by at least 40 percent, which could help the US company test demand in the country.
However, governing officials stated that there is zero chance for a single company, like Tesla, to receive specific incentives.
