Tesla, the world's most famous electric car, could launch in India as early as this summer. Tesla CEO Elon Musk made the announcement on Twitter yesterday in response to a query.

Tesla launched its most affordable model, the Tesla 3 in 2016. One of the key announcements made during the keynote launch event was that the car would be available for pre-booking in India as well. Many in India, including CEOs of some startups, have already made the booking for Tesla 3.

While the electric car-maker is planning to begin the production of Tesla 3 soon, details of any plans for the Indian market are not available yet.

Musk had earlier expressed his desire to open a Gigafactory for producing charging solutions and superchargers in India.
