The teaser image suggest that the car would be a swanky looking battery-electric hatchback and the latest teaser image comes just a day after Aggarwal hinted that an electric car is in the making. In a following tweet, Aggarwal also mentioned that the person who purchased a Tata Nexon EV and an Ola S1 e-scooter would probably buy an Ola electric car. “Next car replacement should be the Ola electric car,” the tweet read.
Ola Electric also raised a fresh investment of $200 million (approx. ₹ 1490 crore) from Tekne Private Ventures, Alpine Opportunity Fund, Edelweiss and others. The company says the fresh round of funding values the company at $5 billion. The electric two-wheeler had previously raised a similar amount from Falcon Edge, Softbank and others in September last year. At the time, the company was valued at $3 billion. Over the last couple of months, the company launched its S1 Pro electric scooter in the market, commenced production and deliveries of the same to customers.
