The auto-maker giant Tesla is reportedly hunting for new showrooms in three Indian cities – the capital New Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru.
According to sources, Tesla, back in January had registered a local company in India, where it will likely import and sell the Model 3 sedan by mid-2021.
The electric car maker is looking for properties around 20,000-30,000 square feet for the showrooms and service centres in India, sources added.
Back in October 2020, Elon Musk, the CEO of the car-maker, said on Twitter that the company will enter India in 2021 “for sure”.
Earlier, Tesla’s Chief Executive (CEO) Elon Musk has good news for those who are willing to buy the electric car.
Taking to Twitter, Elon Musk had revealed that a person can now buy a Tesla using Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency.
“You can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin,” he had tweeted.
The other tweet read, “Tesla is using only internal & open source software & operates Bitcoin nodes directly. Bitcoin paid to Tesla will be retained as Bitcoin, not converted to fiat currency.”

Previously, Musk, who had led Bitcoin’s price to soar by $1.5 billion, has witnessed a major loss after the shares of the automaker fall suddenly.
It was reported that Musk had lost a whopping amount of $27 billion, resulting in a historic loss after Tesla’s shares collapsed. However, his $156.9 billion net worth still ranks Musk at number 2 among the Billionaires.
According to reports, Jeff Bezos, the Chief Executive (CEO) of Amazon, has defeated Elon Musk as he topped as the world’s richest man.
Moreover, Musk had been ranked among the world’s 500 richest people and also left Bezos to fall with a remarkable gain of $210 billion in January 2020.
