On January 20, 2021, Ola announced its partnership with Siemens for development of the company’s upcoming electric vehicle manufacturing facility.

The scooter manufacturing unit was declared as a part of Ola’s memorandum of understanding with the Tamil Nadu government signed in the previous month for an investment of Rs. 2400 crore on development of the facility.

A press statement released by Ola stated, “The factory will generate almost 10,000 jobs and with an initial capacity of 2 million units a year, it will be the largest scooter manufacturing facility in the world. It will serve as Ola’s global manufacturing hub catering to its customers in India as well as key markets across Europe, UK, Latin America and Australia-New Zealand.”

Ola, with this partnership, will have access to Siemens’ integrated Digital Twin design and manufacturing solutions for digitalization and validation of products and production ahead of actual operations.

According to Siemens, a production digital twin will be helping in the validation of how well the manufacturing process will work on the shop floor before anything actually goes to production.

With the simulation of the process through digital twin and analyzation why things are happening using the digital thread, companies are able to create a production methodology that stays efficient under a variety of conditions.
