Amit Bhawani started this petition to Tesla Motors and

We have abundant Solar Power in India. We have Lakhs of Indians spending their hard earned money on buying cars in the range of Rs 10,00,000 to Rs 25,00,000, and above that, burning fuel, a natural resource is a sin when you have cheap alternatives available.

Tesla is planning to launch a car in 2016, which would be in the range of $30000 to $40000, or say Rs 18,00,000 and upwords, which is a value for money in my opinion, considering that the costs are almost none post possession and that is a one-time investment, saving two things - fuel, and money for fuel.

Average Tesla car goes upto 500 kms on a single charge, and at this rate you don't really need public chargers initially, if you plan to use this car for city commuting.

Currently there is another hurdle to this issue - Heavy taxes imposed by the government on the Imported cars. The only solution for this, can be seen as a possible agreement between Govt., and these companies where electric cars can be welcomed to India with lesser strict rules, and can be an establishment in the near future, in India.
