A Tesla Roadster travelling around the world is expected to arrive in India later this month — the first time that the iconic sports car has ever appeared in South Asia.

The Roadster, which runs on electricity and can be fully or partially recharged from renewable sources such as solar or wind energy, will spend about two weeks in India.

The Roadster is expected to arrive in India the week of 17 May and will be at Ambience Mall in Gurgaon. Tesla technician Luke McClure, who drove the Roadster more than 4,200 km throughout Europe, will log an additional 30,000 or more km in Asia and North America before returning to his native England.
