Bengaluru-based EV start-up, Ola Electric, has announced that the company has rolled out the 1,00,000th electric scooter from its all-women-run Futurefactory located in Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu. The EV maker commenced mass production in late November last year and managed to achieve this milestone in just 10 months. Ola Electric’s current product portfolio includes the S1 Air, S1, and S1 Pro electric scooters.
Commenting on this milestone, Bhavish Aggarwal, Founder and CEO, Ola Electric, said, “Since embarking on our journey towards electrification of India, we have unlocked the potential of EVs in our country by offering customers a much superior product and experience than what any petrol alternative can offer. This milestone is just the beginning.”
He further added, “The next 1 lakh will be in half this time as the transition to EVs gathers even more pace. India is closer towards making Mission Electric a reality than ever before.” It is worth mentioning that Ola Electric sold 20,000 electric scooters in India in October 2022, which is the highest number among all EV manufacturers. This was 60 per cent growth on an MoM basis.
