Bengaluru-based electric vehicle maker Ola Electric is looking to ramp up the production of electric scooters as well as expand the capacity of its factory in Krishnagiri in Tamil Nadu to meet future demand, company Founder and CEO Bhavish Aggarwal said during a virtual press conference, PTI reported.

Aggarwal said that Ola Electric's future factory is already producing more than 1,000 electric scooter units a day and the company will be scaling it up significantly beyond that. “We feel that in the next six to eight months, we will exhaust the (current) installed capacity and we are also in parallel expanding our capacity in the future factory," he said.
