The American-electric automaker Tesla will be rolling out its first electric car in the country this year. The company has officially registered with the Registrar of Companies earlier this year under the name of Tesla India Motors and Energy Private Limited. It has a registered office in Bengaluru. In order to handle some of its operations in India, Tesla has hired top executives.

These include an IIM Bangalore alumnus Manuj Khurana who has been appointed as Policy and Business head for India operation. Nishant has been hired as Charging Manager by Tesla. He will be heading the supercharging, home charging, and destination charging business for Tesla India. Nishant was earlier the head of Charging Infrastructure and Energy Storage at Ather Energy. Moving on, Chithra Thomas, who earlier worked at Walmart and Reliance Retail has been hired as the Country HR leader. 



"I had a video conference with Tesla management. I suggested to them that it is a golden opportunity for them to start manufacturing here in India. Indian products are also improving and within two years, we will get e-vehicles of Tesla standard in the Indian market. So, in the interest of Tesla, I suggested that you start manufacturing in India as early as possible it will be beneficial for you," as commented by Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari.

Tesla is also looking for some commercial properties to open showrooms and service centres in metro cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru. In order to survey the places, it has hired a Global property consultant CBRE Group Inc.
