Delhi High Court Asked Details from Tesla Power India in Trademark Dispute with Tesla Inc

On Tuesday, the Delhi High Court asked Tesla Power India, based in Gurugram, to provide an affidavit with details about the number of electric vehicle (EV) scooters it has sold and the current stock available. This is part of a trademark case filed by the US-based Tesla Inc. The court, led by Justice Anish Dayal, also requested the names of dealers, dates of product launches, and the current stock status.

The US company claimed that despite a previous agreement, Tesla Power India was still selling EV scooters through various dealers under different sub-brands. The court will review the case again on Thursday.


Earlier, on May 2, the court had instructed Tesla Power India not to run any promotional ads for EV products under the ‘Tesla’ brand until further notice. Tesla Inc stated that an independent investigation revealed that EV scooters were being sold, with images and brochures submitted as evidence.

However, Tesla Power India’s lawyer argued that there was no breach of the agreement and promised to present all relevant facts at the next hearing. Previously, on May 2, Tesla Power India claimed it was only selling lead-acid batteries for traditional vehicles and inverters, not manufacturing EV batteries.

Kavinder Khurana, chairman of Tesla Power India, told the court that his company would not produce or market EVs under the Tesla brand. He clarified that the advertisement featuring the Tesla trademark was related to another company, e-Ashwa, with which Tesla Power India has a strategic partnership. Khurana also mentioned that Tesla Power India has been in business for years and serves over a million customers in India.

Tesla Inc argued that the use of its trademark by the local firm was causing confusion among consumers and harming its business. Complaints about Tesla Power batteries were mistakenly being directed to Tesla Inc in the US, as consumers believed the two companies were connected.
