Ola's CEO has provided another update on the company's EV efforts. Bhavish Aggarwal made a fairly lofty promise for Ola's much-anticipated electric car in a recent tweet. He even released a teaser for it, giving us our first look at the car's silhouette.
Ola is intending to develop "the sportiest car ever built in India," according to Bhavish's tweet. The declaration followed Ola Electric's June announcement that an all-electric automobile would be available soon. Though nothing is known about the EV, it is expected to be unveiled before the end of 2023. On August 15, this year, Ola promised to disclose additional information about the electric automobile.

Until the recent tweet, all we had seen of Ola's first automobile was a close-up side perspective of the front. Its first teaser image featured continuous LED lights across the bumper, with U-shaped headlamps at each end. Bhavish's new appearance now showcases the car from the side without showing anything.
A short video shows a shine running through the hood and rooftop of the car. With this, we can see the silhoutter of the entire vehicle, which appears to be a sedan. This is consistent with an earlier forecast that Ola's initial vehicle will be an electric sedan.
Interestingly, the EV will be manufactured entirely in India, a project for which Ola has launched numerous verticals of its EV company. Bhavish recently uploaded a video of Ola's first-ever battery cell. This cell is designed to power all of the company's future electric automobiles. This should strengthen Ola's supply chain for EV batteries and reduce the cost of acquiring them.
Its electric car appears to represent the pinnacle of its goal, at least for the time being. Ola currently sells only the Ola S1 Pro electric scooter in India, but the company is optimistic about the prospect of developing more EVs. It is also slated to release a less expensive version of the electric two-wheeler, with a release date sometime next year.
