Looks like the Indian government has heard the concerns raised by Elon Musk recently about launching Tesla electric cars in India. As if on cue, the government is looking to remove the import restrictions based on price, engine capacity and mandatory local testing for cars.
Would love to be in India. Some challenging government regulations, unfortunately. Deepak Ahuja, our CFO, is from India. Tesla will be there as soon as he believes we should.

In fact he had asked for regulatory relief from India till the time they are able to build a local factory like the one it plans in China.
