Ola electric is all set to likely launch its first e-scooter in July in India.
Ola claims the scooter to be a leap-frog product, which comes with several industry leading innovations including the motor, the battery, the vehicle computer, and several other advanced features. The scooter is expected to get a home charger that will require no installation. This means that the customers would be able to charge their e-scooter at home by plugging into a regular wall socket.
Bhavish Agarwal, Chairman and Group CEO, Ola, said, “It was such a pleasure taking the Ola Scooter out for a spin and putting it through its paces. Its speed, range, maneuverability, ride & handling, and of course its design, and the incredible technology we have packed into this – all make it a game changing vehicle and a beauty to drive.”
The Ola vehicle engineering team has been testing the Ola Scooter extensively for the last few months.
Ola Electric aims to take this vehicle to the international markets, including countries like France, Italy and Germany, in this fiscal as well.
The company has also initiated the process of installing its ‘Hypercharger Network’ across the country with one lakh charging points across 400 cities.
The launch of the electric scooter is in line with Ola’s global vision of moving mobility into a more sustainable, accessible and connected future.
Recently, the company has invested Rs 2,400 crore for the world’s largest manufacturing facility for electric two-wheelers, spread across 500 acres in Tamil Nadu. Its first phase is nearing completion and is expected to be completely built by next year with a manufacturing capacity of 10 million a year.
