Car enthusiasts have been waiting for Tesla cars to be visible on Indian roads since the Elon Musk-owned EV company announced its entry into the Indian markets.

The company started its entry-level Model 3 on Indian roads a week ago, and finally the first-ever Tesla Model 3 is here.

Tesla Model 3 was recently delivered to a car buff from Bengaluru, Karnataka and since then the pictures have made rounds on the internet.

Model-3 marks the first car to be officially launched by Tesla in the Indian sub-continent.

It is the base-version in the car range that Tesla offers. As per the US markets, the base version is priced at $39,990, which is about 30 lakhs in Indian currency. However, due to the custom duty applied on foreign-made cars, i.e., 204% for the Completely Built Units (CBU), the base model in India will cost around Rs.70 lakh.

Model-3 that was spotted in Bengaluru is a dual motor. Tesla also offers a single motor variant. The model is rear-wheel drive and can cover a distance of 423 kilometers when fully charged.

The base model can zoom from zero to 100 in under 6 seconds. The company also offers the top-end variant of Model 3 that gets the range of 586 kilometers and goes from zero to 100 in 3 seconds.

The official launch of Tesla into the Indian markets is still awaited. Although, the red Tesla Model 3 is not the first Tesla in India. There are a few collectors like Mukesh Ambani and Essar Group’s Prashant Ruia,  who privately imported the car way before Tesla hinted at coming to India.
