According to a report in the Hindustan Times, Tesla's Indian subsidiary has entered into a five-year lease agreement with Tablespace Technologies Pvt Ltd for 5,580 square feet of office space on the first floor of B Wing in Pancshil Business Park. The rent for the office space will commence from October 1, 2023 and the two companies have agreed to a lock-in period of 36 months with an escalation clause of 5 percent per annum. There is also an option to extend the lease for another five years, taking the electric vehicle maker's total commitment to 10 years.

The Hindustan Times report, while citing documents shared by real estate analytics firm CRE Matrix, notes that Tesla will pay a monthly rent of 11.65 lakh along with a security deposit of 34.95 lakh to lease the space for a period of 60 months.

The Panchshil Business Park is currently under construction and has a development size of 10,77,181 sq. ft. It is located about three kilometers from the Pune International Airport and will be easily accessible from the city's residential areas such as Koregaon Park, Kharadi, Wadgaonsheri and Kalyani Nagar.
