Cars costing over $40,000 are exempt from any kind of ARAI testing - related news.

I think Riteish's car is not in India. He owns car abroad.

Tried finding the Tesla india thread but couldnt, considering the fact that GOI has opened up 100% FDI into single brand retail today, Tesla should consider launching itself soon in our market.

Have heard reports of a second Tesla - a white one (Model 3) in Mumbai.

Has anyone seen it?

I got this message on WhatsApp highlighting the L board. Is this the same Tesla that this thread is talking about?

Yes, It's the same car. Wonder who's the lucky one who's learning to drive in a Tesla!

Interesting isn't it. Learning to drive in a powerful electric car. A start of a generation of people who probably will drive electric cars more than ICE cars. Like the many, even in India, who started to learn how to drive only when automatic cars became popular, and is unable to drive a stick.
