The EV startup has released a teaser video of its upcoming premium electric cars on the occasion of ‘Ola Customer Day’ program organized at the company’s upcoming facility near Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu. The teaser of more than one Ola Electric car is shown in the 30-second teaser.
Glimpses of OLA Electric Car
In the new OLA Electric Car teaser, we get a glimpse of not one, but three electric cars. The teaser of the upcoming Ola electric car hints at a low-slung sporty sedan with a coupe roof line and advanced design. The other two could be an electric SUV/coupe and a hatchback.
The exterior design of the Ola sedan offers a lot of aerodynamic liberty which is different from the usual IC engine car. It gets a wedge shaped front fascia, a signature LED lighting and a swooping roofline.
Ola Electric CEO Bhavish Aggarwal said that more details will come on August 15. It was learned that Ola has hired former Mahindra designer Ramkripa Anantan, who designed the current XUV700, Thar and XUV300. Ola Electric can enter the passenger car segment in about 2 years. That said, the manufacturing process is usually quicker in a startup setting than for an OEM.
what can come
Building a product base on pre-existing electric skateboards from any of the many international mobility companies will take much less time. There is no information on the powertrain configuration yet. It looks like there could be a motor on each wheel which will be powered by a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of around 60-80 kWh. It appears to have a range of over 500 km. In terms of performance, it will accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 7 seconds and hit a top speed of 150 km/h.
