Ola is all set to launch its all-electric scooter in the Indian market. Recently, Ola Chairman and Group CEO Bhavish Aggarwal took the scooter out for a spin and rode by some of the most iconic spots in Bangalore. It is learnt that the all-electric Ola scooter will go on sale this month itself in the country. It will be made in India for the world at the Ola Futurefactory which is coming up at record pace in Tamil Nadu India on a 500 acres site. Its first phase is nearing completion and when fully built next year, at 10 million a year capacity, it will be the world’s largest two-wheeler factory.
“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 it's design, and the incredible technology we’ve packed into this - all make it a game changing vehicle and a beauty to drive. I look forward to bringing this to our customers soon! ” said Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO, Ola. The Ola vehicle engineering team has been testing the Ola Scooter extensively for the last few months, where the Scooter has returned best-in-class range, speed and performance. The scooter's motor, battery, vehicle computer and several other advanced features have been designed and developed in-house by Ola.
