Ola’s manufacturing facility in Tamil Nadu will employ over 10,000 women, making it the “world’s largest” EV plant. Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO of Ola, said on Monday that the company’s Futurefactory will be operated exclusively by women. Ola Futurefactory, according to Bhavish, will be the world’s “biggest all-women factory.” He said, “Aatmanirbhar Bharat wants Aatmanirbhar ladies!”
Ola Futurefactory, which spans 500 acres, will employ over 10,000 women once manufacturing reaches full capacity.
Last year, Ola announced a 2,400-crore investment in Tamil Nadu to build its first electric scooter plant.
In the first phase, the business said that it will start with a 10 lakh annual manufacturing capacity and subsequently expand up to a 20 lakh capacity based on market demand.
Ola Electric said that once finished, the facility will have an annual capacity of one crore units, “which is 15% of the world’s total two-wheeler output.”
The creator of Ola noted that providing economic possibilities to women benefits not just them, but also their families and the society as a whole.
