As automakers around the world shift their focus on developing electric vehicles, Mahindra and Mahindtra too has jumped on the bandwagon. It unveiled five new electric SUV concepts on August 15. The chairman of the group, Anand Mahindra, shared a clip of the unveiling on its Twitter handle, eliciting reactions from users. Among the number of responses to Mr Mahindra's post, a person has highlighted American automaker Tesla's plan to enter the Indian market that has been shelved due to policy issues with the government.
Sharing a meme featuring actor Pankaj Tripathi from the web series Mirzapur, the person wrote, “Tesla not coming to India. Meanwhile Anand Mahindra to Indians”. The text on the meme read “Hum karte hain prabandh, aap chinta mat kariye (I will do something, you don't worry.)”
The amusing meme was soon acknowledged by Mr Mahindra who replied to it with a smiling emoticon.
Others too have reacted to the industrialist's post.
Many have expressed their faith in Mahindra to bring electric vehicles like Tesla to India.

Meanwhile, Tesla founder and chief executive Elon Musk recently stated that the automaker will not manufacture its products locally unless it is allowed to first sell and service its cars in India.
