New Ola Electric Cars Teased

Ola has slightly revealed its plans for 3 upcoming electric cars, which are going to be a hatchback, sedan & large coupe SUV, respectively. While they have not revealed all three of them, we have the sneak peeks of the sedan.

The sedan design resembles the Ford Figo Aspire with a similar rear design. Upfront, it has a low nose and seems aerodynamic with a wedge-shaped front, swooping roofline & interconnected headlights & taillamps. It features a sleek appeal with a short rear boot along with a silver skid plate.

The sharp cuts throughout the design make it look like a hot hatchback with a menacing appeal. Coming to the SUV has a bold muscular design with bulgy panels, a sloping roofline & chiselled connected taillights. It seems highly spacious with a raised boot and curvy panel, giving it a proper coupe stance.

Upcoming Motherplant in Tamil Nadu

Ola’s electric cars will be made at their upcoming mother plant in Tamil Nadu. While these cars have been fully conceptualised, the production will commence at the end of 2023. Their facility, known as the FutureFactory, holds immense potential to overdeliver in a short period of time and has room to accommodate expansion too.

So, they can easily accommodate new scooters & cars. While the time seems less, Ola might buy an existing platform or skateboard from one of those international EV startups which did not catch up. This would help save time, but the word says they are making their own platform from scratch to keep things local.

Expected Powertrain

We can expect a large battery pack of around 70-80kWh which could provide a long-range for the electric car just like the S1 Pro scooters. The competitors such as Tata Nexon EV Max provides a claimed range of 437 kilometres with a 40.5kWh battery, and Kia EV6 provides a range of around 528 kilometres with a 77kWh battery. Hence we can expect a similar number around 500-600 kilometres.
