A blue Model S has made it to Mumbai so that makes it the first Model S in the country !

Fellow bhpian blackwasp had shared pics of the Model S with me over whatsapp. I will request him to share the pics on the forum as well.

Here is a picture of it shared by CarCrazy.india on Instagram. According to them, it is going to the Ambani's elusive collection. Here it is,

Can we change the name of the thread to Teslas in India?

I'm not the source of these images, got them from my friend Ashish Sachdeva over Whatsapp. I have masked the number plate as its clearly visible in the last pic.

Yes goes to the Jio Collection and they are on a buying spree since last 15-18 months. Going by the number of supercars and exclusive cars in that garage, we might need a dedicated thread soon !

Surely! From the Mclaren 570s Spider which is rarely seen to the Bentagya which is spotted almost every other sunday. We sure will need a thread for the famous Jio Garage. Sorry for going but what happened to the Cullinan? Is it there in Antilia or was it a demo car specially for the Ambanis?

The Cullinan is very much theirs. Used usually by Anant Ambani, it even sports MH plates with one of their many signature numbers.

Wonder how Tesla owners in India are going to deal with driving their cars on road trips spanning across several days. The market for EVs in India will surely expand, but only when there are widely available adequate resources (such as charging stations). Until then, these Teslas will only be acquired by people who want the novelty but have other cars to take out when they want to travel somewhere far away from their home.

They will be limited between visiting each others personal Superchargers in Mumbai. If I am correct, they can only be chagred by Supercharger or a long session with an ordinary plug

While the Jio Collection has grown, I wonder what's in the other Ambani's garage these days. He was quite fond of fast cars, had a Gallardo at one time.

A Black W204 C63 is the only 'enthusiast' car in that garage AFAIK, others are SUVs like TForts, Range Rovers etc

The Blue 993 was theirs, and the first gen Gallardo was a part of the Jr. Ambani collection.

While the Scuderia was a part of the Jio Garage back in the day.

Oh. My bad.
Always thought all three belonged to Jr. Ambani.
