The Government of India (GoI) will lower the import duties on Tesla’s electric cars if Tesla agrees to set up a manufacturing plant in the country, according to reports.

The government will also provide other SOPs to the American EV maker company in return for its investment in the country.

This comes days after the company requested the government to lower the import duties on its cars.

The huge import duties and taxes are delaying the entry of Tesla into the country, Tesla CEO Elon Musk wrote on Twitter a few days ago.

The American EV maker Tesla wants to bring its electric cars through the Completely Built Unit (CBU) before establishing its manufacturing plant in the country.
