Actual Volkswagen report.
Lithium mining: What you should know about the contentious issue (volkswagenag.com)

1. Chile
2. Australia
3. Argentina
4. China

Some of the main producers.

From article
Volkswagen is working very closely with battery suppliers to ensure the use of sustainably mined lithium in the supply chain. Last year, Volkswagen concluded an initial Memorandum of Understanding with the Chinese lithium supplier Ganfeng. Ganfeng obtains the raw material from several mines in Australia, among others. Lithium from Chile is also used in Volkswagen’s electric models.
Since Mahindra will use Volkswagen id series cars battery tech. So far VW sourcing from LG Chem (SK), CATL (China) and SKI (Europe).


As per India is concerned
Geological Survey of India working on seven lithium exploration projects | Mint (livemint.com)

1. No big reserve so far found. Only RJ and KA looks to have some resource.
2. We already signed MOU with Argentina for overseas mining.
3. Still Survey is going on.

After seeing all the news about EV products coming online everywhere, we have to admit that whether you ir I like him or not, we gotta give credit and hand it to Elon Musk regardless of his abrasive personality. Even though he did not invent the electric vehicle, he single-handedly brought EV to mainstream vehicle market. He is the Ford of our time, our 21st century, and our 3 -4 generations.

He joined Tesla board quite early. One of the two original founder was hell bent on getting the brand killed before making it big. It was Elon with kept the company afloat for over a decade and bring it to the level it is now days.
He did not join it after it became success rather he joined when it was about to close and made it what it is today.
