Bengaluru is the tech hub of slotxo India.Many local technology companies are headquartered there and many multinationals have Indian headquarters in the city.The documents show that the Indian agency has three directors, including David Feinstein, who is currently Tesla's chief executive, according to his LinkedIn profile.Recently, Tesla founder Elon Musk became the richest person in the world, overtaking Amazon's Jeff Bezos with more than $ 185 billion (£ 135 billion).His foray into India comes as the country's Prime Minister Narendra Modi is promoting 
the production and use of electric vehicles to reduce the country's dependence on oil and reduce pollution.But efforts have been hindered by a lack of investment in manufacturing and infrastructure such as charging stations.Still, Indian electric car makers are increasingly looking to electric vehicles as a growing market.Tata Motors, India's largest automaker, is expected to launch a range of low-cost electric vehicles this year, while Mahindra and Maruti are expected to launch their own models this year.
