Now, for those unaware, after detailing its plans to build the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturing plant in the Tamil Nadu region of India earlier this year, Ola unveiled its first electric two-wheeler last month. The company started taking reservations for the vehicle on its official website and received over one lakh reservations for the e-scooter that made it one of the most pre-booked scooters in the world.
So now, it seems like Ola is ready to launch its hyped electric scooter in India on the auspicious day of India’s independence. It will presumably be unveiled during a virtual event on 15th August.
We already have an idea about the specs and models of the Ola scooter. The company will reportedly unveil three models of its e-scooter with different horsepower. They will be called the Ola S, Ola S1, and Ola S1 Pro and will pack a 2KW motor, a 4KW motor, and a 7KW motor respectively. Plus, we also know that the Ola scooter will come in 10 vibrant colors including Red, Yellow, Pink, Gold, Black, White, and more.
Moreover, Ola is building a massive Hypercharger charging network across India to enable Ola electric scooter owners to easily charge their vehicles on the road. Furthermore, the company will also save on dealership costs by directly taking orders from customers and delivering the vehicles to their doorsteps.
