Ola CEO Bhavish Aggarwal has released a teaser video showing what the company’s automotive division is supposedly working on.
Model, or rendering, looks like a concept vehicle with lots of greenhouses, curved body panels, and some nice wheels.
In contrast to this concept, the finished model will have exterior mirrors, cameras, flush-fitting door handles, and proper light wipers, among other things.
While the Ola Electric car teaser(?!) has come now, the company’s plan to enter India’s electric passenger vehicle market got leaked back in April 2021.
Then, in August that year, Aggarwal officially announced that Ola will enter the electric car segment “in the next 2 years”. Thus, the official unveiling of the Ola Electric car should take place sometime in 2023.
Based on the teaser, it is clear that the EV will be a compact urban runabout, and it will need more ground clearance than what is shown in the image to better tackle Indian roads.
Ola Electric is seemingly not working on a 4-wheeler alone. In September 2021, Aggarwal revealed that the brand would expand its product portfolio to include “more scooters, bikes and cars” through a blog post. So, an electric motorcycle is also on the way.
