CHENNAI:Ola, one of the world’s leading mobility companies, has announced that it is launching a newelectric vehiclecategory on its ride hailing platform, which will allow riders to specifically book rides in a fully electric vehicle.
The category, called Ola EV, is a global first for Ola and will be available across London from today and over time will roll out to other cities around the world where Ola is operational.
This is the first step in a series of measures Ola will make over the coming months, detailing its commitment to green transport networks, zero-emission travel and further supporting the Mayor of London’s bold plans to improve air quality across the capital.
To incentivize drivers to use the new Ola EV category, Ola will offer a market-leading 0% commission rate for the first three months for all electric rides. Post the launch, Ola plans on extending offers through key partnerships to provide easy and affordable options for drivers and riders to shift to fully electric vehicles.
