Tamil Nadu’s capital Chennai is nicknamed the “Detroit of Asia” due to the presence of major automobile manufacturing units and allied industries around the city. The state, which is one of the world’s 10 largest auto hubs, is now inching towards becoming one of the largest global bases for electric two and three-wheelers.
