Why is Tesla not in India?
CEO Elon Musk suggested on Monday that plans to begin selling cars in India as soon as this summer have been delayed.
"Maybe I'm misinformed, but I was told that 30% of parts must be locally sourced and the supply doesn't yet exist in India to support that," Musk tweeted in reply to a question about whether Tesla (TSLA) would launch in India this year or next.
The billionaire entrepreneur didn't go into detail, but Musk's response suggests the company is no longer targeting a summer launch, a possibility he suggested in February.
Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
U.S. electric car major Tesla has alluded to a challenging environment for not being able to enter India.
"Would love to be in India. Deepak Ahuja , our CFO , is from India. Tesla will be there as soon as he believes we should," CEO Elon Musk Tweeted.
