Energy company Tesla will commence its operations in India later this year. While we await further official information, a report states that it has finalised the location of its first office and showroom – in a posh part of Mumbai.
Earlier this year, Tesla registered a company in India, incorporating it in Bangalore, leading many to believe that it would end up being the base of its operations in the country. However, a new development suggests that Mumbai will take the crown for Tesla’s first office as well as showroom.
Mumbai’s commercial area of Lower Parel-Worli will be Tesla’s home in India, serving as its office as well as a retail store. It is reportedly in the process of evaluating a couple of ready-to-move commercial properties for a 40,000 sqft establishment.
Blackstone Group’s One World Centre office space is said to be the top contender for Tesla’s office. The same complex also hosts companies like Morgan Stanley, American Express, Aditya Birla Group companies, the Kingdom of Spain, IDFC First Bank and others.
