Ola Electric is a big part of India’s current shift towards electric mobility and it has big plans to join the four-wheeler space as well. Today, the company has released more information about its upcoming model which is set to be the sportiest Indian car yet with a claimed range of over 500km.

Based on the digital teasers shown today, Ola EV seems to have a crossover-like design with decent ground clearance and a coupe-esque glass roof. Its overall shape is said to have a drag coefficient (Cd) value of less than 0.21 which should offer an aerodynamic efficiency similar to, if not better than, the Tesla Model 3.

The carmaker also revealed that not only will its electric car have keyless entry, but it will not even get door handles. It is not yet known what mechanism and design will be used instead of handles.

While Ola has not revealed any of the specifications of the EV, like battery size or electric motor output, this sporty EV aims to complete the 0-100kmph sprint in 4 seconds. It will feature Ola’s own MoveOS software for its various technology-based features and ADAS.

Little was revealed about this Ola EV in terms of design. We saw some familiar details from previous teasers such as the slim LED headlamps with the light strip across the front end, and the sportily-styled rear end with an unbroken strip of LED taillight across it.

We also got to see the smoothly sculpted front bumper with air curtains and the contrasting black rear bumper with horizontal slats. The only teaser for the interior was a large, tablet-like central display and rear seats that seemed to be reclined for comfort. The glass roof runs into the rear windscreen for a notchback like design.

Ola has big plans to upscale its local production and development of EVs and batteries at the FutureFactory. It intends to have a production capacity of 10 lakh cars from its four-wheeler EV manufacturing facility by 2026-27. The carmaker intends to build six different cars at this factory based on two different platforms.
