Bhavish Aggarwal, Founder and CEO, Ola, said, “Over the last year EVs have been at the center of transforming personal mobility. At Ola, we have been at the epicenter of this change, driving adoption, increasing access and affordability. There is much to be achieved yet. Currently, less than 15% Indians own a 2W or a 4W and with India poised for strong economic growth, the Indian automotive industry will
witness demand for 20Mn 4Ws and 50Mn 2Ws each year. We believe that India needs to become the global epicenter of the EV revolution and command 25% of the world’s automotive market.”

“Today, at Ola we are taking Mission Electric to the next level by ensuring we have a roadmap to investment in technology, build scale and bring quality products that India deserves. As we build for India, we will also be creating the EV paradigm for the rest of the world,” Aggarwal further added.
