Visakhapatnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry and several others have pitched for the establishment of an electric car manufacturing unit in the city by the American electric car giant Tesla.
According to a report in The Hindu, Vizagites have a dream to attract a car manufacturing unit to the largest cosmopolitan and commercial city of Andhra Pradesh
There had been extensive speculation after Narendra Modi made a visit to Tesla Motors during his recent American visit but all those speculations were found to be rumours. Later, Nitin Gadkari, the transport minister of India cleared all the rumours and announced that he proposed to the Senior Tesla executives to make India their Asia manufacturing hub. He also offered to allocate land for the manufacturing plant near major ports like Vizag, to facilitate easy export of the vehicles to South-East Asian countries.
Vizag has always been a clean and ecofriendly city and if Tesla comes up in Vizag, it’ll be another step and a pollution-free transportation system can be introduced in India easily.
