Tesla bulls have been gathering momentum ready to break out beyond the current resistance level. The rise is supported by both technical analysis and fundamental factors that have been unfolding in favor of the electric vehicle company.

With the demand for electric vehicles rising exponentially in the United States, and overseas. The giant electric vehicle company is set to reap huge once adoption goes globally and in full scale.

Tesla in India

As the coronavirus pandemic subsides both in infection rates and fatalities, Tesla is striving to venture new markets that have been neglected by other electric vehicle companies.

One of the major markets that Tesla is eyeing next is the Indian market that has the capacity to take its sale to the next level.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk indicated on Friday that the company will make a foray into India in 2021.

“Next year for sure,” Musk said in reply to a post with a photograph of a T-shirt with the message: “India wants Tesla”.

India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has been pushing for the manufacturing industries to focus more on electric vehicles.

With India having a huge population and heavily reliant on fuel ran engines, the Prime Minister is seeking a way to protect the environment both for future generations and the current.

Musk commented last year about coming to India, in response to someone on Twitter who asked “What about India sir?”.

“Would love to be there this year. If not, definitely next!” he said in March 2019.
