Tamil youtuber Madan Gowri grabbed headlines globally after receiving reply from Elon Musk, Chief Executive Officer of Tesla, The world’s most exciting automotive company which is ready to set up a factory in India. Madan who enjoys millions of subscribers for his youtube channel, tagged Elon Musk in one of his tweets and requested him to launch Tesla cars in India as soon as possible. Earlier, The Elon Musk-owned electric vehicle company announced its entry into the Indian markets and registered its company on January 8 this year. However, now, replying to Madan’s tweet, Musk said high import duties and an irrational policy are delaying Tesla’s launch in the country.
Ever since Narendra Modi’s administration championed high import taxes for many industries in a bid to boost local manufacturing, Musk’s pitch to lower duties is likely to face resistance. “Dear @elonmusk
please launch Tesla cars in India ASAP!” tweeted Madan Gowri by uploading a picture of the electric maker’s product.
Here’s his tweet :
Getting notified by the tweet of Madan Gowri, Elon Musk wrote “We want to do so, but import duties are the highest in the world by far of any large country! Moreover, clean energy vehicles are treated the same as diesel or petrol, which does not seem entirely consistent with the climate goals of India.” in his tweet.

Tesla has been aiming to begin sales in India this year, in a letter, said to ministries and the country’s leading think-tank Niti Aayog that slashing federal taxes on imports of fully assembled electric cars to 40 per cent would be more appropriate, the report said citing sources. That compares with current rates of 60 per cent for cars priced below $40,000 and 100 per cent for those above $40,000.
Madan Gowri who received reply from one of the richest individuals in the world, has been boasting about it through his social media handles. He made a compilation video of himself talking about Elon Musk three years ago and added the screen recording of the reply he made on Friday. “Love You @elonmusk, Stay the same always” as his caption.
