Musk confirms he will visit India to meet with Prime Minister Modi

New Delhi, April 11 (IANS) – Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has confirmed his visit to India, expressing his anticipation to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his trip. Musk, along with other Tesla executives, is expected to discuss investment plans and the potential establishment of a $2-3 billion manufacturing plant in the country.

Musk is scheduled to meet PM Modi in the week of April 22 in New Delhi, as reported by media sources. The tech billionaire highlighted that the entry of Tesla in India and the search for factory locations align with the global shift towards electric vehicles.
