Bengaluru: Electric car manufacturing major Tesla would soon set up its first manufacturing unit in Karnataka, Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa said Saturday.
“American firm Tesla will open its electric car manufacturing unit in Karnataka,” he said in a statement. However, industry department officials said there is no concrete development yet on the manufacturing unit.
