  • Spearheading a significant funding round that funnelled $140 million into India’s Ola Electric, propelling its valuation to a staggering $5.4 billion. 
  • Discover how this funding surge solidifies Ola Electric’s dominance in India’s e-scooter market, with a 32% market share. 

Singapore’s investment firm, Temasek, has led a substantial funding round that amassed $140 million for India’s Ola Electric. According to sources with direct knowledge, this investment came at a staggering $5.4 billion valuation. The funding infusion marks a moment for Ola Electric as it gears up for its much-anticipated initial public offering (IPO).

The investment round has been successfully closed, and Ola Electric is poised to receive a substantial capital injection within the coming week. Sources suggest another fundraising round is on the horizon before the company formally files its IPO papers, with a target of raising $1 billion. This IPO is slated for a late 2023 launch, and industry insiders are closely watching this development.

A venture founded by Bhavish Aggarwal and backed by Japan’s SoftBank Group has cemented its status as the leader in India’s burgeoning e-scooter market, boasting an impressive 32% market share. This substantial funding round further strengthens the company’s position in this competitive landscape.

The company’s valuation has soared to $5.4 billion from $5 billion just last year. From April to August 2023, it achieved sales figures, with approximately 95,000 e-scooters sold, as per industry data. In the fiscal year ending March 2023, the company reported an operating loss of $136 million despite generating revenue of $335 million.

India’s government has set an ambitious goal for the two-wheeler market, aiming for electric vehicles to comprise 70% of total sales, including motorcycles, by 2030—a substantial increase from the current 14%. This government initiative underscores the immense growth potential and importance of the electric vehicle sector in India’s future transportation landscape.
