A recent tweet from Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, talks about the electric vehicle company's expansion plans in the next couple of years and includes India as well.

"Tesla will produce all the battery modules at China's super factories, as we do today in California and Nevada", Musk said.

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.

After initially claiming that Tesla will come to India this summer, in February 2017, not much has developed in this regard since then.

However, this is not the first time Musk has provided a timeline about the company's entry into India.

Following the launch of the Model 3 a year ago, Tesla repeatedly missed aggressive production targets for the new vehicle, blaming "manufacturing bottlenecks". His tweed said, "hopefully, partial presence in India, Africa & South America end of next year, with broader expansion in 2020".

Tesla and Musk have regularly stated their intentions to enter the Indian market, but stringent government regulations have hampered its chances, just like what Apple has been facing.

Earlier in May, Musk had hinted out his firm's entry to India via micro-blogging site Twitter.

The SEC had also issued subpoenas in connection with Chief Executive Elon Musk's previous statements that he was considering taking the company private, it said.

During the visit, he had invited Musk to set up a production facility in India and make India the manufacturing hub for the company's Asian markets.
