The prospect of Tesla setting up a manufacturing facility in India has generated widespread excitement, with state governments vying to attract the iconic automaker. Reports suggest that both Maharashtra and Gujarat have extended lucrative land offers to Tesla, underscoring India’s commitment to fostering an enabling environment for EV adoption and manufacturing.
