The long-awaited Tesla Model 3 electric sedan will officially go on sale in the country by the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2021-22. Bookings for the new model will commence in January 2021.
Initially, Tesla cars will be introduced as CBU (Completely Built-Up) unit; however, local manufacturing could start at a later stage.The Model 3 will be available with single and dual-motor options.

Tata Motors will launch the electric derivative of the Altroz hatchback by the end of 2021. It is likely to share the powertrain with the Nexon EV.
The Nexon EV comes fitted with an IP67 certified 30.2kWh battery pack with a permanent AC motor. The Altroz EV is likely to offer a range between 250km to 300km.
