Ola Electric's big 75th independence day announcement includes a new EV car, but details of the product have not been revealed. The company has announced a new S1 scooter and its own battery.
Ola Electric’s event’s Independence Day announcement is over and the company has confirmed the upcoming launch of its EV car. The company says the car will arrive in 2024 and it will have a range of 500 kms. It also announced a S1 scooter as well as a new battery. Ola CEO and cofounder Bhavish Aggarwal has talked about bringing an EV revolution in India during the event. He claims the company’s Ola Future factory will be able to produce one million EV cars in the future.
Agarwal has been posting teasers about the car announcement for a while now. But it looks like the new EV car will take sometime before it arrives. The only details that Ola revealed at that the car will go from 0 to 100 in four seconds. But the car will only arrive in 2024, which means this is still a product in development.
Ola already has EV scooters in the market, though safety concerns have been raised about these products in the last few months. The Ola Electric car, according to Aggarwal, will sport a futuristic looking design.
“We deserve a car that defines this new India. An India that is fearless and believes in writing its own destiny. Our car is going to be one of the fastest cars in India. 0 to 100 within 4 seconds, it will have a range of more than 500 kilometres per charge. It will be the sportiest car ever built in India, with an all-glass roof, it will have Move OS and assisted driving capabilities as good as any other car in the world. It will be keyless and handleless,” said Ola Electric founder and CEO Bhavish Aggarwal, during the livestream.
Our details about the car's design and performance figures remain sparse as the company has not revealed much about the vehicle. Ola did announce that the car will be launching in 2024
