In a major milestone for Tesla, the company has successfully built its inaugural Cybertruck at Giga Texas.
The highly anticipated electric pickup truck, known for its futuristic design and exceptional capabilities, is making significant progress towards production.
Tesla’s Cybertruck had been slated for a summer debut, with deliveries expected to commence by the end of the third quarter this year. However, it seems that Tesla has surpassed expectations, as the “first Cybertruck” has emerged from the production line at Giga Texas.
While this Cybertruck is likely a “production intent” unit, symbolizing a crucial step towards full-scale manufacturing, it signifies Tesla’s advancement ahead of the previously projected timeline provided to suppliers.
With its sights set on entering the Indian market, Tesla has been actively engaging with government officials in recent months. In a meeting between CEO Elon Musk and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Tesla committed to making an investment in India at the earliest opportunity.
Now, emerging details from reliable sources shed light on Tesla’s ambitious plans in India. According to reports, Tesla is aiming to establish a factory capable of producing up to 500,000 units of an affordable electric car, priced at around $24,000 (approximately Rs 20 lakh).
This strategic move by Tesla demonstrates the company’s commitment to tapping into the Indian market, which holds immense potential as one of the largest auto markets globally. By localizing production and offering an affordable electric vehicle option, Tesla aims to cater to the sustained demand for electric vehicles in the country.
Additionally, Tesla intends to leverage its Indian factory to export vehicles to the Indo-Pacific region, further expanding its global reach and solidifying its position as a dominant player in the electric vehicle market.
As Tesla continues to break barriers and exceed expectations, this development marks another significant step forward in its pursuit of sustainable transportation. With the production of the first Cybertruck at Giga Texas and its plans for an Indian factory, Tesla is poised to shape the future of electric mobility on a global scale.
