“A cell is the heart of the EV revolution. Ola is building the world’s most advanced cell research center that will enable us to scale and innovate faster, and build the most advanced and affordable EV products in the world with speed,” Bhavish Aggarwal, Founder and CEO, Ola Electric, said in a statement.
“Our first indigenously made Li-ion cell is also the first of many in our cell technology roadmap. Having a robust local EV ecosystem is important for India to become a global EV hub,” Aggarwal said.

The state-of-the-art High Nickel Cylindrical Ola Cell uses NMC on the cathode side; and Graphite and Silicon on the Anode side. The use of specific chemistry and materials enables the cell to pack more energy in a given space and also improves the overall life cycle of the cell. The cell has been developed keeping the indigenous conditions at the core.
