Ola to make cheaper lithium-ion batteries, will reduce the cost of electric vehicles by up to 30 percent

Currently, companies manufacturing electric vehicles in India depend on countries like China, Taiwan and Japan for SAIL. Due to the import of SAIL, the cost of electric vehicles increases. At the same time, the production of other equipment used in the battery has started in India itself. Ola is currently buying sales for its electric vehicles from LG Chem.

At present, due to the lack of local production of SAIL in India, the cost of electric vehicles is high, due to which the prices of e-vehicles in the market are higher than petrol-powered vehicles. This is hindering the development of electric vehicles in the country.

The specialty of Ola’s cell is that it has the capacity to store more energy than ordinary lithium cells used in e-vehicles. Apart from this, its life cycle is also more, due to which it can be used for a long time.
