Every day, new and old companies alike are making new deals and announcing things related to EV development. The latest company to do so is Ola Electric. They have signed a big deal. To whom you ask? The answer lies ahead with all the details of the deal and some related stuff.
Let’s get started then with the details of the deal.
Before jumping into the deal, here is quick info on Ola Electric. Ola Electric is an Indian electric two-wheeler manufacturer. The company was founded by Bhavish Aggarwal in 2017.
Coming to the deal, Ola Electric made a deal with StoreDot which is an Israeli battery technology firm.
Under the deal, Ola Electric will be able to have access to the Israeli firm’s state-of-the-art XFC battery technology.
