The Autocar India report claimed that Ola is preparing to bring its first electric car to India. At present, the company has not made any official announcement regarding this nor has any information been given about its design or specifications in the report. However, citing the source, the report says that the upcoming Ola Electric Car will be built on the Bourne-electric skateboard platform and its design will be very modern. It will be a compact car, which will come with a limited range. Apart from this, it has also been claimed that its price will be quite attractive. All this shows that the company is planning to attract the younger generation and more population of the country with this car.
The report says that the Indian mobility start-up will make its first electric car locally and for this the company is also planning to set up a Global Design Center in Bangalore. It is reported that Ola has also recruited some designs from automobile giant Tata for its electric car project.
Recently, Ola shared information about the launch of its first Electric Scooter. To meet the shortage of charging stations in India, the company also announced the setting up of 1 lakh hypercharging stations in 400 cities of the country. Out of these, 5000 stations will be set up in 100 cities this year. The company claims that the Ola Charger present in these stations will charge 50 percent of the scooter in just 18 minutes, allowing the scooter to take out a range of 75 kilometers. Ola has also said in another tweet that the company is making 1 electric scooter every 2 seconds.
In May last year, Ola acquired Amsterdam-based electric scooter manufacturer Etergo BV. Since then, many reports say that the company can use the technology of the popular scooter AppScooter of Etergo in its scooter.
