Don’t get China-made cars: Nitin Gadkari to Tesla – ET Auto

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari

NEW DELHI: Road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari on Friday said that he had told US-based Tesla not to sell ‘Made in China’ electric cars in India. The minister said he has also urged the Elon Musk-led company to have its manufacturing unit in India and export from here. Gadkari’s comments reflect a caution on China following border tensions even as trade in several areas continues.“Whatever support you (Tesla) want, will be provided by our government,” Gadkari said while addressing an event. Gadkari said he was holding dialogues with Tesla officials regarding the company’s demand related to tax concessions.

Minister in favour of raising speed limit on NHs to 140kmph: Highways minister Nitin Gadkari on Friday also pitched for increasing the speed limit of vehicles on national highways and expressways, and said his ministry is in favour of increasing the maximum limit to 140 kmph, but the Supreme Court and high courts need to be convinced about it.

Addressing ‘India Today Conclave 2021’, Gadkari further said electric cars manufactured by Tata Motors are not less good than electric cars manufactured by Tesla. “I have told Tesla that don’t sell electric cars in India which your company has manufactured in China. You should manufacture electric cars in India, and also export cars from India,” he said.

The fair, expected to attract tens of thousands of visitors with Brandenburg locals given priority, will start at 10am and bands and DJs will “keep the party going” late into the night, according to the official event website.
