Model Y shown on testing in India
Talking about Tesla’s entry in India, no official announcement has been made on this subject yet, but the Model Y has definitely been seen during testing on Indian roads. As per the images revealed, the Model Y crossover SUV shares some styling bits with the Model 3 sedan including the headlight cluster, taillights and basic profile design. At the same time, the design of the alloy wheels given in it seems similar to the sedan.
The pandemic and chip shortages around the world have plagued the global automotive industry at large, though Tesla has managed to claw its way out with significant potential and is now turning to more detail figures in the new year.
