  • Electric vehicles charging stations No separate licence required

The largest ride-hailing business in India has very ambitious plans of putting one million electric vehicles on the polluted streets of the country.

Ola co-founder and chief executive Bhavish Aggarwal said three-wheelers also offer an immediate opportunity to improve results for all stakeholders, while lessening pollution across towns and cities.

Ola launched its first electric vehicle project in Nagpur a year ago and the project includes electric cabs, electric auto rickshaws, electric buses, rooftop solar installations, charging stations, and battery swapping experiments. Electric cabs and buses, as well as rickshaws, were included in the Nagpur roll out.

A million electric Olas by 2021In line with its Mission Electric programme, Ola is planning introduction of a million shared EVs on the country's roads by 2021, and improve outcomes for its driver partners, as well as work towards solving mobility issues in the country with environmentally sustainable solutions.

The homegrown unicorn will work closely with different city corporations, driver partners, vehicle manufacturers, and battery companies to make sustainable technologies cost-effective and viable for daily commute.

Uber has purchased electric vehicles in the hundreds from Mahindra, an India based carmaker that is the only company selling them to consumers directly.

"After more than 4 million electric kilometres travelled and many lessons learned, we are significantly expanding our commitment to electrify mobility in India".

Ola believes that electric vehicles cannot only help the environment but can also have better outcomes for drivers, customers, and even help the company's overall business model.

Ola is in discussions with several state governments to create an appropriate policy environment to deploy electric three-wheelers. Ola intends to leverage its scale to bring cleaner, more comfortable, and safer products to market. It also did not provide details of when it planned to introduce electric cars.

On Monday, Ola said that its vehicles in Nagpur thus far have clocked over four million kilometers or 2.5 million miles.

Ola plans to continue its experimentation with ways to optimise batteries and charging, to develop a strong business model for electric vehicle deployment in the country. India has also set a target to make all new vehicles electric by 2030. Ola will partner with vehicle manufacturers and state institutions to help deliver its promise.

Infrastructure will be provided as part of the initiative, with drivers being given rooftop solar panels and charging stations. Electric rickshaws have already shown to be popular in India, with over 100,000 battery powered three wheelers being operated in Delhi.
