Tesla to Open EV Production Plant in Bengaluru: Karnataka CM

Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa has announced that US-based electric vehicle (EV) and clean energy company Tesla will set up its production unit in Bengaluru, Karnataka.

“American car company Tesla will set up its electric car division in Karnataka,” Yediyurappa said in a statement.

A report said, that Tesla registered in the name of Tesla India Motors and Energy Private Limited at an address on Lavelle Road in Bengaluru’s CBD on January 8, 2021.

Also, recently Tesla owner, Elon Musk said in an interview that he tried to propose implementing a carbon tax in the US, to president Joe Biden but he was told that the idea was essential “too politically difficult.”

Elon told, “I talked to the Biden administration, and they were like ‘Well, this seems too politically difficult.’ And I was like, Well, this is obviously a thing that should happen. And by the way, SpaceX would be paying a carbon tax too. So I’m like, you know, I’m like, I think we should pay it too. It’s not like we shouldn’t have carbon generating things. It’s just that there’s got to be a price on this stuff.”

“If we just put a price on carbon emissions, the market will react in a sensible way. But because we don’t have a price on it, it is behaving badly,” Musk added. He called carbon concentrations in the atmosphere and environment an “unpriced externality.”

Elon further explained.”The fundamental good of Tesla is to what degree it accelerates the advance of sustainable energy. It’s inevitable. It’s tautological.”

After registering its name in India as Tesla India Motors and Energy Pvt in Bengaluru, it then reported that the EV giant might set its base for operations in the state of Gujarat.

However, now it is confirmed that EV production is going to establish in Karnataka’s Bengaluru.
