New Delhi: Ola has started construction of its two-wheeler mega-factory on its 500-acre site in Hosur, Tamil Nadu, the company said in a release. The company plans to operationalise its Phase 1 in a few months with a capacity to roll out two million electric scooters a year.
The electric vehicle manufacturer said it is close to launching the first in its range of electric scooters in the coming months.
Said to be the world’s largest, the scooter manufacturing facility is being built very fast with an estimated more than 10 million man-hours to operationalise in the next few months.
The mega-factory will serve as the company’s global manufacturing hub for its range of electric-two-wheelers across India and the international markets including Europe, the UK, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Australia and New Zealand.
The factory will incorporate Industry 4.0 principles and will be powered by Ola’s own proprietary AI Engine and tech stack that will be deeply integrated into all its systems. It will incorporate about 5,000 robots and automated guided vehicles in use once it is operational to its full capacity.
Ola has already brought on board global partners and suppliers as it works towards getting its factory operational in the coming months.
