Musk was quoted by the website as saying that Tesla will hopefully gain a partial presence in India, Africa & South America end of next year, with broader expansion in 2020. He had earlier said "Would love to be in India".

Musk clarified the current situation in a tweet a few months back, citing challenges with adhering to the Indian government's regulations. Deepak Ahuja, our CFO, is from India.
