How will lower import tax duties for Tesla EVs impact Indian car makers?

The Indian government is considering a new electric vehicle (EV) policy that would reduce import taxes for car companies, potentially allowing high-end EV manufacturers like Tesla to enter the Indian market. Under the policy, carmakers committed to local manufacturing would receive a substantial tax cut. Presently, cars priced above $40,000 face a 100% import tax, but the new policy could lower the tax rate to as low as 15%. This move could benefit Tesla and other luxury car manufacturers, but may pose challenges for local mass-market car manufacturers. Key Points
