According to a recent update, when someone tweeted and asked Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX about Tesla entering the Indian Market, he replied by emphasizing upon the extremely high import duties that also exist for the electric vehicles. According to Elon Musk, it may result in making the Tesla electric cars unaffordable for the market. The tweet was the result of previous multiple claims by the company of bringing Tesla cars in the Indian Market.

The company started its venture by launching small sports car called the Roadster and was succeeded by models like Model S and Model X. Tesla also unveiled its new launch namely Model 3 that was termed as a much affordable electric car. The launch of Model 3 was followed by conjectures of it entering the Indian Market

The trends are changing in India, given the shift towards electric vehicles. The Indian government is making numerous efforts to discourage carbon emission by vehicles. One of the main steps was the reduction in the GST rate on electric vehicles but still, these cars attract a huge amount of import duties.

If we try to dig deep into these provisions, a car priced higher than INR 27 lakh will be imposed with an import duty of 100%. Whereas, if the vehicle is priced lower than INR 27 lakh then import duty of 60% is imposed on such vehicles. All these provisions will contribute to Model 3 to be priced much higher than its fueled competitors. Hence, proving it to be not a wise idea to launch it in the Indian market.

Further, the company needs to analyse the demand for the Tesla vehicles and to collect funds that will help it set-up a plant in the country. Traditionally, this is done by selling cars which are succeeded by the decision of factory set-up. It’s interesting to notice that the business tycoon gave a special mention to the recent reductions in taxes that give the company much hope regarding its future ventures in India.

Another day and yet another fascinating tweet from Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk confirmed that the Tesla cars are highly likely to get the ability to stream Youtube and Netflix videos. The news has been confirmed from Elon’s reply to a fan asking about the version 10 of the in-car software. All thanks to the car’s extraordinary sound system, video streaming is bound to offer a cinematic experience to the passengers.

“Ability to stream YouTube & Netflix when car is stopped coming to your Tesla soon! Has an amazingly immersive, cinematic feel due to the comfy seats & surround sound audio.” Tesla CEO Elon Musk teased in a tweet.

According to him, the customers will be able to stream a video only when the car is stationary. The videos can be further streamed when waiting for a passenger as well as during the charging time.

Tesla’s CEO also confirmed that once the regulators approve the fully autonomous driving capabilities, video streaming can be made available when the cars are in motion. According to the reports, Tesla officials also plan on extending the current decision to in-car gaming features though, considering the safety measures, it is not an entirely suitable idea as even in the autonomous driving mode, the driver might have to take control of the situation manually to avoid accidents.

“When full self-driving is approved by regulators, we will enable video while moving”, Tweeted by Elon Musk on the approval of self-driving mode.

Tesla is likely to implement the horizontally oriented infotainment systems of the lower-end Model 3 and Model Y with the video streaming capabilities while the portfolio with vertical screens like Model S and Model X is expected to be left out since the vertical screens won’t be able to offer space for horizontal content. While most people will not buy Tesla car for streaming their favourite Netflix videos on the go, this one doesn’t seem like a bad option for many who find themselves idle in the car frequently.

If you love electric cars and wish to know everything that happens to them on Earth, a new world record has arrived. This time, Tesla Model X P100D has successfully towed a 130 tonne Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in Melbourne. The event was organized by Qantas and results were pretty impressive.

The giant airplane was towed for 300m and thus, Tesla Model X becomes the first electric car to tow such a huge plane. Petrol and Diesel-powered cars have already achieved bigger feats as Porsche Cayenne S towed a 285 tonne Airbus for 73m. Tata Hexa even towed one in 2017.

Production-spec electric cars are not made with an intention to pull such heavyweights as they are made by keeping maximum efficiency in mind. Still, the amount of power required to pull 130 tonnes was present in Tesla Model X P100D.

This typical variant is available with 1072 Nm of massive torque, that too from the first slight press on its accelerator. On the other hand, Porsche Cayenne S Diesel has 850 Nm of torque. Cars with electric drive-trains are highly efficient and thus, internal combustion engines cannot achieve this amount of perfection when it comes to pulling power.

This midsize luxury SUV comes with falcon wing doors and shares 30% of components with Tesla Model S. Deliveries for the car started in 2015 and two years later, more than 75,000 units were sold. The car measures 5036 mm in length, 1999 mm in width and 1684 mm in height.

Wheelbase stands at 2965 mm, making Model X good for three-row seating and 2509 kg of weight for the P100D variant. This is also the most powerful variant offered by Tesla while base starts with 60D. The car used for pulling the Dreamliner can sprint from 0-100 kmph in just 3.1 seconds.

Tesla Model X is a powerful electric SUV that runs on clean power and brings mind blowing power to the driver. It is the safest car among other Tesla variants, seating seven adults in the utmost luxury and still getting a great overall range.

Ideal conditions can result in almost 475 kilometers of range while charging through Tesla superchargers brings no cost of driving for a limited time period. Still, these features may not be available in India till Tesla makes an official entry. The range will also drop with our non ideal driving conditions, road traffic and temperature.

Tesla Model X takes just 2.9 seconds to sprint from 0-97 kmph, making it faster than a typical supercar that you can buy around INR 5 Crore. Self driving feature is available as standard but may not work great in Indian riding conditions where road signs are hard to find and speed limits are not considered at all.

Tesla offers clean air AC, automatic emergency braking, side collision warning, lane departure warning and another long list of features as standard on Model X. The floor mounted battery design and impressive packaging of Model X is simply amazing.

Tesla Roadster is groundbreaking and that comes true from its 0-97 kmph sprint time of just 1.9 seconds. This makes the second generation Roadster first car in production history to break the 2 second barrier. A quarter mile drag race would take 8.9 seconds to finish while 0-161 takes just 4.2 seconds.

The claimed top speed is still unavailable but Musk hints that it’s well over 250 mph. The 200 kwh battery pack on the Roadster makes it good for more than 1000 kms of driving range. This is the second best number available from the new Roadster.

All this power comes from single front and two rear motors and gets channeled to all four wheels through the advanced drive-train. The base variant for the Roadster will cost around $200,000 (INR 1.3 Crore approx, direct conversion) while higher spec will be placed higher at $250,000 (1.6 Crore approx.).

Cost effectiveness has always been Tesla’s heavy point and Roadster is no different story. It will be faster than cars that are almost 10 times its price and that may force fossil fuel lovers to think once about electric power. Well, imagine winning a drag race from any of the available Ferrari and that too with zero emission throughout the race.

The feeling would be awesome. Carrying a delightful design, Tesla Roadster is nothing less than a head turner when placed against any possible hypercar around the world. Fantastic and future friendly, the second generation Roadster is here to make big brand sweat.

These stations are very useful as they can charge the car in few minutes, saving hours of wait and electricity for the user. Indians will focus more on Model 3 as it is the most practical model that claims more than 350 kilometers of range and 0-60 kmph in 6 seconds. These values are for the base variant and both the values change among all models.

2017 Tesla Model 3

The same model is expected to cost around INR 50 lakh as Indian import duties are quite high for CBU’s. The same costs $ 35,000 in the US. Deliveries of the Model 3 will start in 2018 only while other two will be extensively available as per customer’s demand. The cars are highly reliable and come with autonomous driving as an optional function.
