On Wednesday, Ride-hailing major Ola had launch its electric two-wheeler range in New Zealand.
This will help support the New Zealand government’s goal of bringing on road 64,000 new electric vehicles by the end of 2021, while also helping the public sector become carbon neutral by 2025, Ola said in a statement.
According to the industry sources, the company plans to launch the range in New Zealand over the next 6-9 months
“We welcome and strongly support the move by the Prime Minister and the New Zealand government towards carbon neutrality, especially in the mobility sector. We are excited about bringing our electric two-wheelers to New Zealand to further accelerate development of sustainable solutions. Climate change is a serious challenge and Ola is committed to moving the world to sustainable mobility through our products”, said Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO, Ola, in a statement.
“Ola wants to play an important part in New Zealand’s journey to become carbon neutral. We’ve witnessed strong and steady growth in the e-scooter and e-bike sector so we believe Ola’s new scooter product will be welcomed by consumers as a way to contribute towards establishing a 0-carbon economy,” Ola New Zealand MD Brian Dewil said.
