Now again, through a tweet and short-length video, Mr. Aggarwal has confirmed their October event will happen on the 22nd of October, 2022. 

Through their tweets and replies to the tweets the followers have been sending at them, Ola Electric and Mr. Aggawal have been hinting as well as confirming what could be introduced on the 22nd of October 2022. 

Ola Electric October 22 Event – What Could Be Introduced

Through a reply to a tweet posted by one of the followers, Mr. Aggarwal himself confirmed that Ola will be announcing their detailed plans regarding their ‘Hypercharger’ accessory, MoveOS 3 and various other accessories for their S1 & S1 Pro electric scooters. 

However, there are very strong rumours circulating that Ola Electric will be launching a new variant of their S1 line of electric scooters and it will be aimed at the masses this time. 

Ola is planning to launch an entry-level and affordable electric scooter on October 22, and it is being suggested that it will take on the most popular ICE scooter sold in our market – TVS Jupiter & Honda Activa.

The new, more accessible S1 variant is rumoured to be priced at around Rs. 80,000/- (ex-showroom) and will be equipped with many modern features. Yet, it is suggested that some of the premium features will be missing from this electric scooter. 

Though, to entice as many customers as possible, Ola will be offering many modern features like Bluetooth smartphone connectivity and riding modes, the feature list will be stripped down with many premium features and riding modes removed from this electric scooter. 

Similarly, with an aim to keep the prices low, Ola could use a smaller battery in place of the 3 kWh unit seen on the S1. This could bring the expected range down to around 100 km. This will be on par with the rival base electric models -, TVS iQube S with the claimed range of 100 km, Ather 450X Gen 3 with claimed 105 km & Bajaj Chetak claiming around 90 km. 

Finally, all these new announcements will be pushed under the umbrella of their new campaign – #EndICEAge – which is aimed to accelerate & push the rapid adoption of electric mobility solutions in India. There could be some new information regarding their upcoming Electric Car (scheduled for 2024) as well.
