Fawad Chaudhry Invites Elon Musk to Set Up Tesla EV Car Plant in Pakistan

Foreign Minister for Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhry, has invited Tesla’s owner, Elon Musk, to establish a car factory in Pakistan after the billionaire’s company shared its goal of producing half a million electric vehicles in its upcoming factory near Berlin.

Chaudhry tagged Musk in his tweet in response to a news story shared by Al-Arabiya while highlighting the benefits of starting an electric car factory in Pakistan.

Chaudhry made a logical argument that 68% of the world’s population lives within a 3.5 hours flight radius from Islamabad, making Pakistan an ideal spot for the export of electric vehicles.

The minister said that Pakistan offers ten years zero tax facility with duty-free import for factory set-up, adding that the country is also the 3rd biggest freelance market in terms of software exports.

The US automaker is planning to build its fourth factory in Gruenheide near Berlin where it will be producing 500,000 electric cars including Model 3 and Model Y along with future Tesla models.

The company aims to start the plant termed as Gigafactory in 2021. The plans are yet to undergo an environmental impact review as well as public consultation.

The American billionaire, however, hasn’t responded to Chaudhry’s tweet or invitation as of yet.

    • Australia biggest battery project was also done by tweet. Mike Cannon-Brookes responded to elon’s bet that he can get batteries installed in 90 days or money returned back

      • Just because Australia’s biggest project was done over tweet and a certain US president conducts both foreign and domestic policy, as well threatens war, over tweet, doesn’t mean it’s professional.

      • Dost aap nay lagta hai…….Aaala taleem Twitter par hasil ke thi………….is it the professional way to call the investor……….Elon is not a street hawker………………Oh Taaill walay thora Taaill ider bhi day daina…..Fraud Chaudhry

        • Yr Elon musk aysa banda nahi ha jaisa aap smjh rahy ho. Uss insaan ny dunyia ko dikhaya ky wo sb sy kitna alag hy PewDiePie ky meme review show myn aya, aik show myn sub ky samny smoke kr raha tha weed agr koi orr banda hota tou wo professional hota aisy jagah

  • This guy does some high quality meth. Elon would never come here under current conditions.

      • Comparing weed and meth is like comparing aspirin and morphine. I mean they’re both painkillers but they’re not even close to being in the same league. Weed is small time, it might as well be cigarette smoking. Meth on the other hand is a hard drug. (Not defending drug usage)

  • “68% of the world’s population lives within a 3.5 hours flight radius from Islamabad”

    He means India!!!
