New Delhi, Jan 25: A day after its green vehicle subsidiary mopped up $200 million at a valuation of $5 billion, Ola CEO Bhavish Aggarwal on Tuesday tweeted an image hinting at the launch of the company’s electric car.
On Twitter, Aggarwal responded to a tweet of a person who bought a Tata Nexon EV and an Ola S1 e-scooter. Bhavish Aggarwal stated in the tweet, "Next car replacement should be the Ola electric car." Following that, he also shared the design of the car writing, "Can you guys keep a secret?"
His Tuesday's tweet has an image of a hatchback electric car rendered with the Ola logo at the front. The design teased in the image looks quite futuristic with an extended windshield. This was a design render and the final product could see several changes.
Last year, Aggarwal stated that Ola's first electric car will be available in 2023. He went on to say that the firm wants India to become a global powerhouse for electric vehicles.
Ola Electric is currently selling the ‘Ola S1’ and ‘Ola S1 Pro’ electric scooters, which have received mixed feedback from the customers. The product is designed and developed by an Amsterdam-based company Etergo, which Ola acquired two years ago.
