The new chic category is available across south Mumbai to begin with, and would be introduced to other parts of the city soon, Ola’s chief marketing officer Raghuvesh Sarup said.

“With a growing number of young executives, entrepreneurs and professionals, the need for on-demand luxury sedans is growing tremendously in cities,” Sarup said, citing the reason for introducing the service.

Founded in January 2011, Ola offers its services across 102 cities and has over 3,50,000 cabs and 1,00,000 autos and taxis under its platform. Its services include Ola Shuttle and Ola Share for daily commute and ride-sharing, respectively.
