Ola Electric announced that it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tamil Nadu government to invest Rs 7,614 crore towards its manufacturing expansion across 2Ws, 4Ws and cells. The brand is geared up to start its production on a mass scale of its cells from its upcoming EV Hub latest by this year.
Through this MoU, the company will set up its EV Hub to house the advanced cell and EV production facilities, supplier parks and vendors, and the larger ancillary ecosystem for its vehicles at a single location. The EV Hub, located in the Krishnagiri and Dharmapuri districts of Tamil Nadu, will make Ola EV Hub the world’s biggest EV facility at a single location. The company claims that the hub will be spread across 2,000 acres.
Bhavish Aggarwal, the CEO of Ola Electric, said, "Our Hon’ble Prime Minister has envisioned the next 25 years as Amrit Kaal in India. I firmly believe that this is our decade and we have a great opportunity to build our future. We are on the right track to become a global hub for EVs. At Ola, our aim is to localise all critical elements of the EV value chain. Ola’s EV Hub would bring the entire EV ecosystem under one roof making us a much stronger vertically integrated mobility company across 2Ws, 4Ws and cells.”

It sought an investment of a whopping USD 500 million. The company claims that the BIC is the world’s largest and most technologically advanced R&D facility. It has over 200 unique and future-forward lab equipment to cover everything related to research and development.
