India's biggest ride-hailing company has ambitious plans to put a million electric vehicles on the country's polluted streets.
Ola, Uber's main rival in India, said Monday that as a first step it's aiming to roll out a fleet of 10,000 electric rickshaws in several cities over the next 12 months. India's ubiquitous three-wheeled taxis are normally fueled by gas. Ola wants its drivers to switch to battery-powered versions.
The company said it plans to hit the 1 million vehicle target by 2021.
