All female Employees at Ola Futurefactory to lead Electric Vehicle Revolution
The Ola Futurefactory, which makes the recently announced Ola electric scooters, will employ 10,000 women at full capacity.
Women will run the whole Ola Futurefactory, which houses Ola scooter and is the world's largest e-scooter factory. "An Aatmanirbhar Bharat requires Aatmanirbhar women," Ola Electric CEO Bhavish Aggarwal wrote in a post announcing the decision on Monday.
The first batch of all-female employees arrived in Chennai, eager to help Ola accomplish its aim of leading the electric vehicle revolution. Their first task will be to prepare for delivery Ola's electric scooters, the S1 and S1 Pro.
“This is the first in a series of initiatives we are undertaking at Ola to create a more inclusive workforce and provide economic opportunities for women across the board," Aggarwal said.
“Enabling women with economic opportunities improves not just their lives but that of their families and indeed the whole community. In fact, studies show that just providing women parity in the labor workforce can grow India’s GDP by 27 per cent," the Ola Electric CEO said on the macroeconomic prospects of the move.
Ola Electric's Futurefactory features a number of noteworthy goals in addition to a unique workforce.
The Ola Futurefactory will employ over 10,000 women when it is fully operational, alongside over 3,000 AI-driven robots.
Ola Futurefactory will be the world's largest and only women-only factory, as well as the world's only all-women automobile manufacturing facility.
Bhavish Aggarwal, CEO of Ola Electric, indicated that the firm has invested substantially in educating and upskilling its all-female workforce in fundamental manufacturing skills, and that they will be responsible for the whole production of each car produced at the Ola Futurefactory.
Ola Electric intends to produce 10 million electric scooters per year, which it thinks will account for 15% of existing two-wheeler capacity. It has a production capacity of 2 million units in the first phase.
On its ten production lines, Ola intends to produce one electric scooter every two seconds.
Ola Electric is producing its own battery packs, motors, vehicle computers, and software in order to keep 90% of the parts close to the Futurefactory. This is done to keep prices down.
