After months of speculation, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has all but confirmed the company’s entry into India in January. On Jan. 13, the world’s second-richest man tweeted “as promised” in response to a storey on a Tesla-focused blog that the manufacturer was in discussion with multiple Indian states to build an office, showrooms, an R&D centre – and potentially a plant.
