New Delhi, April 10: Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is reportedly planning to visit India later this month to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and announce his mega investment plans, as the country doubles down on its EV adoption strategy. However, an official confirmation on Musk’s India visit from the tech billionaire or his electric car company was yet to come.

Musk is slated to meet PM Modi "in the week of April 22 in New Delhi", Reuters reported on Wednesday, citing sources. The X owner, accompanied by other top Tesla executives, is also likely to make an announcement about his investment plans and setting up of a potential $2-3 billion manufacturing plant in the country, the report mentioned. Elon Musk Says Tesla’s Entry in India Will Be a Natural Progression.
