Ola Electric's upcoming electric vehicle hub in Krishnagiri district, Tamil Nadu, has the potential to engage a workforce of 25,000 once it becomes fully operational, Moneycontrol reported.  

Speaking at the Global Investors Meet 2024 in Chennai, Bhavish Aggarwal, Co-founder and CEO of Ola Electric, announced that the EV hub will be operational starting next month.

The EV hub is spread across 2,000 acres, which will also have a vendor and supplier network besides manufacturing capacity.

In June 2023, Ola Electric revealed plans to establish an EV hub in Tamil Nadu, which will include the Ola Future Factory for electric vehicle manufacturing and a gigafactory with co-located suppliers.
