Ola Electric plans to construct over 4,000 charging hubs for its electric scooters throughout cities next year, as part of its ambitious charging infrastructure initiative.

Bhavish Aggarwal, Founder and CEO of Ola, said in a tweet that the rollout of Hyperchargers has commenced across cities.

Ola revealed the ‘Hypercharger Network’ in April, a charging network for its planned two-wheelers, beginning with the Ola Scooter, which would be available in India in the coming months.

According to him, over 4000 points will be added throughout the country before the end of the year at critical BPCL pumps and residential complexes, and he expects them to be functional in 6-8 weeks.

“All consumers will be able to use these charging points for free until the end of June 22” Aggarwal stated in a tweet, last Tuesday.

The charging network, according to the business, will be the world’s largest and densest electric two-wheeler charging network, with more than 100,000 charge points spread over 400 cities.

In the first year alone, the business plans to install over 5,000 charging stations in 100 cities throughout the nation, according to a release.

With this network, the company’s future Ola Scooter can be charged to 50% capacity in just 18 minutes for a range of 75 kilometres.

At its Futurefactory, Ola has ventured into intelligent two-wheeler electric vehicle production. It has already commenced delivery of its e-scooters, the Ola S1 and S1 Pro, although with a slight delay.

“By building the world’s largest and densest two-wheeler charging network, we will drastically expedite customer acceptance of electric vehicles and speed the industry’s transition to electric,” stated Aggarwal.
