In a delightful twist that has caught the eye of netizens, a unique car has emerged on the streets of Karol Bagh in Delhi, sparking widespread curiosity and amusement among users.
Former Shark Tank India judge Ashneer Grover, who is known for having a straightforward and bold attitude, recently took to X to share a picture of a car that's turning heads in Delhi.
"World's first 'cross-breed' Tesla! Some Delhi boy literally 'built his dream' in Karol Bagh," Ashneer wrote, tagging the official handle of Tesla's X page.
Grover's post, which quickly went viral, humorously celebrated the ingenuity of a "Delhi boy" who "literally 'built his dream.'"
However, upon looking closer, the car isn't what it appears to be at first glance. It's actually a BYD Atto 3, an electric SUV, but with a twist—it proudly wears the Tesla logo on its rear.
The BYD Atto 3, which comes from the Chinese company Build Your Dreams (BYD), is known for its impressive features, including a one-touch open/close tailgate, roof rails, and electrically heated and adjustable ORVMs.
Despite its high price tag starting at Rs 33.99 lakh (ex-showroom), the vehicle has attracted attention for its bold Tesla branding, sparking a flurry of reactions online.
The post has not only garnered over 300,000 views but also sparked a lively discussion among netizens. Comments ranged from admiration of the creativity involved to playful jabs at Elon Musk, Tesla's CEO.
Some users joked about the potential for Tesla to set up a manufacturing plant in Karol Bagh, while others imagined future quirky modifications to Tesla vehicles.
Here are some of the reactions from netizens:

In addition we got to believe in the existing hidden talents instead of looking at the international glare which may be unhealthy in the long term 😕
When life gives you BYD, slap a Tesla sticker on it and say, 'Elon who?' Genius at Karol Bagh rewriting automotive history. 🚗⚡🤓 #DIYTesla .. btw..Must've used the 'innovation decal' option in the upgrade package! 😂— Priyanshu Kalra (@PriyanshuKalra) February 4, 2024
