Ola to provide 100,000 charging points for electric two-wheelers

Share

Ola Electric, which is setting up a two-wheeler mega-factory in Tamil Nadu, today announced it would provide a comprehensive set of charging options to all its electric vehicle customers. This includes a combination of widely deployed high-speed Ola Hyperchargers and home-charger (which will come bundled with the Ola Scooter to start with).

Ola claims its Hypercharger Network will be the widest and densest electric two-wheeler charging network globally, with more than 100,000 charging points across 400 cities. In the first year alone, Ola is setting up over 5,000 charging points across 100 cities in India, more than double the existing charging infrastructure in the country.

Ola Hypercharger is also claimed to be the fastest two-wheeler charging network. The Ola Scooter can be charged 50% in just 18 minutes for a 75 km range, providing superior range confidence.

Ola Hyperchargers will be widely deployed across cities. They will be located in city centers and dense business districts as standalone towers as well as in popular locations such as malls, IT parks, office complexes, cafes, and more, ensuring that Ola Electric customers always have a Hypercharger nearby.

The Ola Hypercharger network, being built by Ola and partners, will be complemented by the home charger that will be bundled with the Ola Scooter. The home charger will require no installation and will provide Ola customers the convenience of charging at home by simply plugging into a regular wall socket for overnight charging.

Announcing the charging network plans, Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO, Ola, said, “Electric is the future of mobility and we are reimagining the entire user experience of owning an electric vehicle. Our plans to build a comprehensive charging network is a key piece of this. By creating the world’s largest and densest 2-wheeler charging network, we will dramatically accelerate the customer adoption of electric vehicles and rapidly move the industry to electric.”  

Ola Hypercharger network will offer an effortless and seamless charging experience to Ola customers. Customers would be able to easily monitor the charging progress in real time on the Ola Electric app, and the same app can be used to pay for the charging as well seamlessly.

Ola’s mega-factory, spread over a 500-acre site, will have an initial capacity of two million units a year in the first phase. It will serve as the company’s global manufacturing hub for its range of electric-powered scooters and two-wheelers across India and international markets, including Europe, the UK, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Australia, and New Zealand.
