Musk also mentioned that Tesla plan to set up a pan-India supercharger network and this showed how serious the company is about foraying into the Indian market. But does it come as a surprise though that Musk wants to see Tesla in India? Well, not really. The automotive industry in India is growing and currently worth $74 billion. In fact it’s poised to become the third-largest automotive market in the world and that’s certainly a huge-ish bait for Tesla.
