Indian Union Minister Piyush Goyal visited Tesla state of the art manufacturing facility amid India’s consideration to lower tariff for imported EV

Indian Union Minister Piyush Goyal recently visited Tesla’s state of the art manufacturing facility at Fremont, California. He shared his experience that he felt extremely delighted to see “talented Indian engineers & finance professionals working at Senior positions and contributing to Tesla’s remarkable journey to transform mobility”.

He also wrote that he felt proud of the “growing importance of Auto component suppliers from India in the Tesla EV chain”. As per the Union Minister’s X post, Tesla is on its way to double the components imports from India.

During his visit, Musk could not be there and wrote in comments “My apologies for not being able to travel to California today, but I look forward to meeting at the future date”.

The visit becomes more important when India is considering a request from Tesla to lower tariffs for imported electric vehicles. This was recently reported by the Financial Times in a report. As per the report, officials said, “Their view has always been that they need some tariff concessions at least in the interim period,”. It further mentioned that Tesla has asked this as a precondition to building a plant in India.
