It is true that people are finally getting aware of the pathetic condition of the world in terms of pollution levels and environmental conditions. The number of dangerous chemical and industrial substances is increasing in the air due to human activities and if left uncontrolled, can destroy the earth in the near future. Keeping all of this mind, most of the capable industries are trying to put in a useful contribution and offer some alternative solution. New forms of sustainable, renewable and non-polluting energy sources are being researched. Keeping all of this in mind, Ola has offered to help in its own way by adding electric cars to the fleet.

Ola’s eco-conservative expansion   

As many as 10,000 electric cars would be added to the huge fleet Ola manages over the next year. These cars would be electric three-wheelers and they would be deployed in the urban locations throughout the country. The news is no surprise as Ola has already been trying to expand its fleet. It has also been experimenting with the electric cars and three-wheelers in Nagpur and checking out for applicable results. It is true that the electric Ola taxi project has seen glitches with most of the drivers not happy about the charge times as well as the limited range of these cars, the expansion can be seen to be supporting of Ola's commitment to owning more than 10 lakh automobiles in the country by 2021.

Goverment is trying to improve the market of electric vehicles 

It is true that in cities like Delhi there are already a large number of electric cars on the street. The government also has recently said that it is considering that the special permit for running the electric three-wheelers and other vehicles like buses would be removed. This means that the convenience would lead to an increase in the number of commercial transport urban vehicles that run on electricity. Also, it needs to be kept in mind that Ola already has as many as over 10 lakh drivers registered officially as part of the riding network and the numbers would grow significantly if the above rule becomes true.It is true that in cities like Delhi there are already a large number of electric cars on the street.

Ola’s go-green initiative 

As of today, electric vehicles do hardly have any popularity in the country. It is true that preserving the atmosphere is of utmost importance but when it comes to livelihood, people do not have the means to opt for something that would be difficult to maintain and buy in the long run. Electric vehicles sold in the country account for about only 0.1 percent of the total 30 lakh vehicles that are approximately sold in the country. With the strong push that the government is giving towards electric vehicles like introducing the new green number plates, the sale of electric vehicles in the country is bound to increase over the years. Also, the overnment is planning to allow teenagers of the age 16 to 18 to freely ride electric scooters. The decision taken by Ola does not seem mistimed if these things are taken into consideration.
