Tesla is finally coming to India. We have confirmation from Elon Musk and Minister Nitin Gadkari.
Arun yesterday brought to my attention that two new companies have appeared on MCA Website.
i. R75005660 TESLA INDIA MOTORS AND ENERGY PRIVATE LIMITED - Reserved.
ii. C74431727 TESLA ENERGY PRIVATE LIMITED - Applied For
Now MCA website lists every company with name Tesla, but these two seems recent addition. However having names "India", "Motors" & "Energy" makes it looks like first one is the Tesla we all want. For the second one, I don't know why Tesla would register it's Energy Business separately.
Today I found out that, there are 5 Tesla famous Wordmark Trademarked.
i. Applied in 2013, for various vehicle parts.
ii. Applied in 2013, Services for financing services for Vehicles
iii. Applied in 2015, services for Energy related financing
iv. Applied in 2013, services for vehicle repairs
v. Applied in 2015, Services related to Energy Business.
Would be interesting to see how Tesla proceeds in India.
