Special Edition: Tesla’s planned India foray

Reuters has dominated coverage this year of Tesla’s launch plans in India — especially the automaker’s lobbying efforts for lower import tariff on electric cars. Reuters reporting in recent weeks triggered a rare public debate among the country’s automakers and government officials over a long-standing controversial issue on lowering the barrier for luxury car imports.

India, like other governments across the world, also wants its automakers to build more electric vehicles, but many are not ready. The series of Reuters stories on Tesla’s demands not only highlights the pushback from traditional automakers, but also exposes the challenges India faces with respect to its investment and economic policies at large.
