In the run-up to an imminent launch, the Ola Scooter went on a ride on a recent Sunday morning in Bangalore. Ola Chairman and Group CEO Bhavish Aggarwal took the scooter out for a spin. He rode by some of the most iconic spots of the city. “It was such a pleasure taking the Ola Scooter out for a spin and putting it through its paces. Its speed, range, manoeuvrability, ride and handling, and of course its design, and the incredible technology we’ve packed into this - all make it a game-changing vehicle and a beauty to drive. I look forward to bringing this to our customers soon!” said Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO, Ola.

The company has designed the motor, the battery, the vehicle computer, and several other advanced features through innovative software. The engineering team at Ola has been testing the Scooter extensively for the last few months. Thus, it has returned best-in-class range, speed and performance, the company said in a statement.

The manufacturing of Ola Scooter has begun in India for the world at the Ola Futurefactory. The latter is coming up at a record pace in Tamil Nadu India on a 500 acres site. Its first phase is nearing completion and when fully built next year, at 10 million a year capacity, it will be the world’s largest two-wheeler factory.

About the Ola FutureFactory in India

Ola is building its FutureFactory on Industry 4.0 principles. Ola will use its own proprietary AI Engine and tech stack to deeply integrate into all its systems. The company aims the system to continuously self-learn and optimise every aspect of the manufacturing process. This will provide unprecedented control, automation and quality to the entire operations; especially with Ola’s implementation of cyber-physical and advanced IoE systems.

The factory has an initial annual capacity of 2 million units. Thus, Ola’s FutureFactory will create 10,000 jobs and serve as the company’s global manufacturing hub for both India and international markets across Europe, UK, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand. The mega-factory is also expected to be the country’s most automated, with about 5,000 robots and automated guided vehicles in use once the factory is fully operational to its full capacity.
