The CEO and founder of Ola, Bhavish Aggarwal has been dropping hints on Twitter from his personal account about the company’s very first Electric Vehicle (EV).
In his most recent tweet, on August 4, he wrote: “Ground Zero” while using a hashtag that says “join the revolution” and revealed its fully-ready production facility in the state of Tamil Nadu.

In the year 2020, Ola had announced an investment of ₹2,400 to establish the world’s largest scooter manufacturing facility. This year in June, Aggarwal had informed about the completion of Ola Futurefactory’s first phase. The factory is expected to offer around 10,000 jobs with an initial annual production capacity of 2 million units.
The plant, which is set up over 500 acres of land, is an integrated facility along with manufacturing, battery as well as supplier parks. Nevertheless, more than 90 per cent of such parks are localized and nearby.
Aggarwal created a poll on Twitter asking his followers if they would like their scooters to be purchased virtually or physically. The latter option was rejected by more than half of the voters.
How do you want to buy your scooter?

On Tuesday, the founder thanked consumers who had reserved the company’s EV. In addition, he said he was planning to conduct a launch event on August 15 and that he would share the further details soon.
