Ola Electric has come forward with a new initiative of E-Scooters with a vision to provide the world with a carbon negative footprint, clean mobility and an inclusive workforce, who will work alongside more that 3,000 AI-driven robots.
It will make its own battery packs, motor, vehicle computer and software to ensure that 90 per cent parts are present in close proximity, and to ensure low costs. It plans to make one electric scooter every two seconds on its 10 production lines with an aim to produce 10 million electric scooters annually.
“Enabling women with economic opportunities improves not just their lives but that of their families and indeed the whole community. In fact, studies show that just providing women parity in the labor workforce can grow India’s GDP by 27 percent,” the founder said.
Ola Electric has invested significantly to train and upskill its all-women workforce in core manufacturing skills, and they will be responsible for the entire production of every vehicle manufactured. Their first task will be to ready Ola’s S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters for delivery.
