Starman and Tesla Roadster Have Shot Past Mars, SpaceX Says

A recent tweet from Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, talks about the electric auto company's expansion plans in the next couple of years and includes India as well. He explained that Tesla would also be seeking a "partial presence" in India, Africa and South America by the end of 2019, that would be followed by "broader expansion" in 2020.

The US Justice Department (FBI) has also requested documents as part of a similar investigation, but those investigators have not issued subpoenas or made other formal requests, Tesla said in a statement Friday.

USA regulators have demanded Tesla to hand over information as part of a criminal investigation into whether Elon Musk's electric auto maker misled investors over its production figures.

At the beginning of this year, however, the entrepreneur expressed the company's interest in the Indian market one more time.

The company which is known for its electric cars also has plans to expand in North America, Eastern Europe, China, and Japan, Musk revealed in his tweets.

But the urgency of the situation amid their slow start surely forced the Lakers to make a move sooner than they wanted. He helped Dallas win the 2011 National Basketball Association title, and was an All-Star in the 2012-13 season.

The entrepreneur wants to make pricing affordable, through a strategy that focuses on local production for local markets at a continental level.

"Payload will be my midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity", Musk tweeted in December prior to its launch.

Last week Tesla reported its first quarterly profit in two years, with wider margins and positive cash flow.

In June 2017, Musk had confirmed on Twitter that Tesla was "in discussions with the government of India".

According to the website, the rear-wheel-drive model has a "mid range" battery, a range of 260 miles, 50 miles less than the long-range battery that the more expensive Model 3 is equipped with. A Tesla Model X was also seen on the roads of Mumbai past year.
