Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO of Ola, expressed his excitement at having Yongsung join the team at Ola Electric.
“I look forward to collaborating with him as we launch our range of electric products around the world. His expertise in sales, distribution and service will be critical for our global expansion and for bringing our advanced, innovative electric products to our customers,” he said.
Ola describes its upcoming electric two-wheeler as a “leapfrog product” that is packed with several in-house innovations including the motor, the battery as well as the vehicle computer – all designed by the Bengaluru-headquartered firm.
Yongsung Kim said: “I am very excited to join Ola Electric and its team to develop a winning strategy for India and global sales for its range of EV products, beginning with the Ola Scooter.
“With this new assignment, I also returned to India, where I had spent several years in the sales teams of Hyundai Motors and Kia, so it is doubly satisfying for me and a great opportunity to work together towards putting India on the world EV map.”
