Electric vehicle maker Ola has unveiled its proprietary NMC 2170 lithium-ion cell. In a statement on Tuesday, Ola said it will begin mass production of its cell from the upcoming Gigafactory by 2023.
“Using specific chemistry and materials allows the cell to store more energy in a given space and also improves the overall life cycle of the cell,” he said. “The cell was developed with respect to the original conditions in the nucleus.”
Founder and CEO, of Ola Electric, Bhavish Aggarwal noted that the heart of the EV revolution is the cell.
“Ola is building the world’s most advanced cell research center that will enable us to scale and innovate faster and rapidly build the world’s most advanced and affordable EV products,” Aggarwal said.
“Our first domestically produced lithium-ion cell is also the first of many in our cell technology roadmap. It is important for India to become a global EV hub to have a robust local EV ecosystem,” he added.
The company said it is committed to investing in basic research and development to create indigenous advanced cell technologies, strengthen manufacturing capacity and create an integrated Ola Electric Vehicles hub.
