Ola Electric on Thursday unveiled the Ola Hypercharger Network, the charging network for its upcoming two-wheeler products starting with the Ola Scooter to be launched in the coming months.
Ola will offer the most comprehensive set of charging options to its electric vehicle customers through a combination of widely deployed high-speed Ola Hyperchargers and the home-charger that will come bundled with the Ola Scooter.
The Ola Hypercharger Network will be the widest and densest electric two-wheeler charging network in the world, 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 Electric says that the Hypercharger will also be the fastest two-wheeler charging network as an Ola Scooter can be charged 50 percent in just 18 minutes for a 75 km range. Ola says that the Hyperchargers will be widely deployed across cities in city centers and dense business districts as standalone towers and in popular locations like malls, IT parks, office complexes, cafes, and more. The home charger by Ola will require no installation and with this, customers can charge their scooter by simply plugging into a regular wall socket for overnight charging.
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 are 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, together with the home-charger and Ola Scooter’s industry-leading range, will ensure that customers have complete range confidence when opting for Ola’s electric vehicles.
Ola Hypercharger network will offer an effortless and seamless charging experience to Ola customers. They have to simply arrive at a charging location and plug their scooter into the charging point. Customers can easily monitor the charging progress in real-time on the Ola Electric app and the same app can be used to seamlessly pay for the charging as well.
The much-anticipated and soon-to-be-launched Ola Scooter is a tech-driven electric vehicle with industry-leading range and speed. It will be manufactured at the Ola Futurefactory which is being built at record speed in Tamil Nadu, India, with its first phase to be ready this summer. Ola Scooter will offer the customer the best-in-class performance and experience. The electric two-wheeler will be priced aggressively to make it accessible to all and will help accelerate India’s transition to sustainable, clean and electric mobility.
The Ola Scooter has already won several prestigious awards including the IHS Markit Innovation award at CES and the German Design Award. It has breathtaking design, incredible performance and industry-first smart features that reimagine the entire scooter experience for customers in India and around the world.
