Detroit of India : Pune or Chennai ?

Here is an article in a recent wall street journal that talks about Chennai as a new Detroit . It's also interesting to read the interactive comments from readers who analyze the ramifications of the fall of Detroit and environmental effect of rampant industrialization of China and India. I am not sure how far is Pune behind Chennai as an auto hub. Mercedes, Skoda, Tata, Bajaj, Volkawagon in Pune versus Nissan, Hyundai, Ford and BMW in chennai. An old article on Pune as a motor hub.

Chennai or Pune, India's emergence of economic might is pleasing.
