India: Ola Electric teases its upcoming electric car

Ola Electric dropped a teaser for its upcoming electric car. The latest teaser reveals some new details about the car. The teaser showed a small glimpse of the interior of the car, showing the steering wheel as well as parts of the dashboard. The steering wheel of the car is different from conventional wheels, and it looks as though it was borrowed from a spaceship. It has a horizontal-rectangular shape with chamfered-off edges, making it octagonal. It also has a two-spoke design, and apart from an embossed ‘OLA’ logo in the middle, it gets backlit buttons which will be used to control a host of features in the car. 

The dashboard also showed that the car will get ambient lighting too. While much else wasn’t visible in the rather dark teaser, some enhanced images showed the silhouette of the infotainment unit. The unit seen in the teaser is rather large in dimensions, and could be in excess of 12-inches in size. The teaser also showed that the car will make do with cameras in place of rear-view mirrors, which will help to cut down air resistance.

Ola Electric also announced some details about its upcoming cars on August 15, 2022. Ola Electric’s first car will be highly aerodynamic, with a drag coefficient of just 0.21 Cd. The company also said that the car will have a 0-100 kmph time of less than 4 seconds, and will have a range of over 500 km on a single charge. The car will also feature an all-glass roof, and ADAS functionality, and will be followed by 5 more electric cars. Ola Electric will have two separate platforms underpinning its upcoming 6 cars, and the cars will be built in its upcoming 200-acre EV factory.
