Burgess has spent almost three decades designing vehicles for the majority of British premium automotive manufacturers, from Rolls Royce and Bentley in his early career, to Aston Martin and Jaguar Landrover to, more recently, Lotus. Notably, he was the chief designer for the Jaguar F-Type sports car, and then studio director for the Jaguar F-Pace SUV.
Expressing a keen interest in taking charge of vehicle design at Ola Electric, Burgess said, “I am looking forward to my work at Ola Electric and to the opportunity to lead a team that will work on designing cutting-edge electric vehicles for the world. I am thrilled to be part of Ola as it accelerates on its path to become a leader in global EV solutions.”
Ola is gearing up to launch the first in its range of electric scooters in the coming months.
The Ola Scooter will roll out from the Ola Future factory which is being built at record-speed in Tamil Nadu. The Ola Future factory will be the world’s largest two-wheeler factory when fully operational with 10 million-a-year capacity next year. The factory will start manufacturing the Ola Scooter as soon as its first phase of 2 million annual capacity is ready this summer.
