The company would invest up to $ 100 million in India over the next three years for setting up of automobile complex including manufacturing of cell batteries in Andhra Pradesh, he said in the first phase, we will invest about $ 30 million and gradually scale up the investments in a phased manner by creating entire ecosystem.
We already asked the AP government to provide 200 acres for the proposed plant, he said the proposed plant capacity would be around 5 lakh units per annum, however, we would produce between 500- 1000 units per month from the leased facility in Telangana.
Our price would be competitive against other competitor’s, he claimed and said currently 2-3 main companies are producing 2 lakh EVs annually against 75 lakh fuel based two-wheeler vehicles.
