However, there is a funny flip side to the story. While Elon Musk did say that Tesla might come to India next year, he has been saying the same thing for years now!

According to News18, in 2018, Musk has tweeted how Tesla could “hopefully” be entering India “next year”, i.e. 2019.

Further, a statement issued by IIT Madras in 2019 mentioned that Musk had said that the company’s entry to our country will “probably happen in a year’s time”.

In March 2019, when someone on Twitter asked him about his plans of coming to India, Musk had replied, “Would love to be there this year. If not, definitely next!”

Keeping this in mind, someone online tweeted how Elon Musk saying “next year” every year is like NRIs saying they will come to India but never do!

Maybe Tesla won’t come to India anytime soon. But one can hope!
