Ride-hailing platform Ola is scouting for multiple sites across major cities in India and several locations in Europe to build a network of charging stations for electric two-wheelers, according to sources.
The Bengaluru-based company had recently announced signing an agreement with the Tamil Nadu government to set up its first electric scooter factory in the state.
According to sources privy to the development, Ola is scouting for multiple sites in 50 cities across India and several key locations in Europe to build a global network of charging infrastructure.
These setups, which will be strategically located, can be used by Ola’s customers to rapidly charge their electric two-wheelers, they added.
One of the sources said while Ola’s e-scooters will feature a removable battery, the availability of a network of charging stations will address any concerns around charging requirements.
