Ola, the country’s leading cab supplier, recently announced the launch of its first electric scooter. The company has released pictures of the scooter on its official website. But now the news is coming that the company is preparing to release the electric car to the Indian market.
According to media reports, the company has started working on this electric car. However, the company has not officially shared any information about this electric vehicle, nor has it revealed the details of this car. It is reported that the company is looking to make its presence in the electric vehicle segment as there are very few players in this segment and this is a great opportunity for the company.
According to a report published in Autocar, this electric car in Ola will be ready on the Bourne-Electric skateboard platform. It will have advanced features with future design. The company is planning to set up a Global Design Center in Bangalore, where the car will be designed, built and painted, material and finished work.
What’s the price: There are reports that it will be a compact car that delivers an average driving range that is great for everyday needs. At the same time, it will try to keep its prices to a minimum so that it reaches the general public. Ola has already hired some Tata Motors designers for its Electric Passenger Vehicle project.
Charging: Strong charging infrastructure is one of the biggest challenges for the future of electric vehicles in the Indian market. However, Ola recently announced the launch of the country’s largest hyper charging network, especially for the company’s upcoming electric scooters. The company is also expected to use the facility for its car. In addition to the car, a domestic charging device is also provided.
Ola’s construction plans for an electric passenger vehicle have not yet been revealed. However, the company has spent over Rs 2,400 crore to build its own two-wheeler division. This magnificent plant is being set up in Tamil Nadu, where construction is also underway. The plant is able to manufacture 20 lakh two-wheelers every year.
