In a recent picture uploaded by the Twitter account of ‘Tesla Club India’, we can see some Tesla Superchargers in India. These high power superchargers can charge a Tesla vehicle from 5 to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.
Tesla’s all-electric cars for the Indian market may not be too long away. The American automaker has already started doing its groundwork in India. We have already seen several leaked pictures and videos of the Tesla Model 3 doing a test run on the Indian roads. And now, a recently clicked picture shows that Tesla has started setting up the charging infrastructure for its vehicles in India.
In a recent picture uploaded by the Twitter account of ‘Tesla Club India’, we can see some Tesla Superchargers in India. These supercharger units are considered V2 150 kW stations, which get two plugs for charging, Type 2 and CCS2. During use, only one of these two charging plugs can be operated. These high power superchargers from Tesla can charge a Tesla vehicle from 5 to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.
Hey @elonmusk ,
We saw that there’s a decent number of Model 3 and Y in India for testing. Any way to start test drives for 2016 reservation holders atleast in key cities while other things are being sorted out. https://t.co/41Ey6F4uH9

Tesla is studying to set up these superchargers and its dealerships in New Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai. These three Indian cities already have a developed charging infrastructure as compared to other major cities of the country.
However, these superchargers that have been seen in India are Tesla’s technology from the previous generation. In other markets like the US and Europe, where Tesla already has a strong presence, the company is working on an improved V3 supercharger with 250 kW charging speed. However, Tesla’s V2 150 kW charging station is faster than most of the fast chargers already available in the country.
Tesla wants to get exemption on import fees in India
It is no secret that Tesla has a keen interest in entering the Indian automotive market. The automaker has already set up a corporate office in Bangalore and has brought in testing models of the Model 3 and Model Y in India. Initially, Tesla’s offerings will be brought to India through the CBU. However, there is no detail about when Tesla’s car will arrive in India.
Elon Musk-led Tesla has already tried to get a discount on import fees for electric cars. Tesla is said to be in talks with the Indian government to reduce import fees on electric vehicles, so that it can get a fair price for its vehicles. Whereas Tesla can start its Indian innings with Model 3 and Model Y.
