The cell has been developed keeping the indigenous conditions at the core, it said.

The company was recently allocated 20GWh capacity under the ACC PLI scheme by the government for developing advanced cells in India, and is setting up a cutting edge cell manufacturing facility with an initial capacity of upto 20 GWh, localising the most critical part of the EV value chain. The company is also recruiting top cell R&D talent across the globe, and will employ 500 PhDs and Engineers, the statement reads.

Ola Electric launched its first electric vehicle in August 2021 and has set up the world’s largest 2W manufacturing facility in India. The company is currently developing its first electric 4W.
