Ola Electric Announcements on Independence Day
Ola Electric‘s Bhavish Aggarwal had earlier last week shared a Twitter poll hinting at the upcoming launches on August 15, India’s 75th Independence Day. We can expect a very eventful launch schedule next week. If the post is anything to go by, Ola will not only launch a new colour variant of the Ola S1 Pro but also a whole new scooter that will be more affordable compared to the S1 Pro. Ola is also expected to unveil its first electric car on August 15. Most likely, this car will be in a concept form and the company might introduce the commercial version in the coming years.
Ola will also be announcing its new cell factory during the event, making it more self-reliant in terms of producing batteries for the Indian market. Also Read - Ola confirms it is laying off 200 engineers to 'centralise' operations
The company recently signed its PLI agreement with MHI (Ministry of Heavy Industries) to set up a new cell factory in India. Considering that batteries are one of the biggest factors in the pricing of an EV, Ola’s in-house cell factory can help it reduce prices considerably. However, it is still pretty early to speculate on that.
