What did Poonawalla say after tagging Musk?

Adar Poonawalla said in his tweet, “Elon Musk If you don’t succeed in buying Twitter, look for an opportunity to invest some of your assets in India to produce high-quality and mass-produced Tesla cars. I want to ensure you that this will be the best investment you have made.”

It is worth noting that last month, Elon Musk has signed an agreement to buy micro-blogging platform Twitter for $ 44 billion. It is also being called the biggest tech deal of recent times. With this, Twitter has now become part of Elon Musk’s business empire along with two of his biggest companies – Tesla and SpaceX.

Tesla cars not launched in India

Elon Musk has not yet launched Tesla cars in India. Tesla cars, which have created a new dimension in the world of electric cars, are mostly produced in the US and China, while importing these cars in India attracts high import duties. In such a situation, the decision of Musk to bring imported cars from China to India is very difficult. However, the central government has proposed to Musk that if he produces cars through Tesla plants in India, it will be a more profitable agreement for him.

It is not that Tesla has not yet explored production avenues in India. Last year itself, Tesla Motors showed interest in opening a manufacturing plant in Karnataka. However, then this plan did not get off the ground. Since then, Maharashtra, Telangana, West Bengal, Punjab and Tamil Nadu have invited Musk to start production of Tesla.
