Ola electric scooter booking surpassed the company’s expectations and due to the spike in traffic the website also faced some technical snags…
Yesterday, Ola electric began the process of booking its debut offering, the Ola Series S (unconfirmed name). Today, the company has informed that it has received a tremendous response and has registered 1,00,000 ‘interests’ within 24 hours of the opening of the booking window.
According to the company, Ola electric scooter is currently the most pre-booked scooter in the world. Ola set the booking price at only INR 499 (the amount is refundable). So, naturally, a lot of potential customers registered themselves through the booking portal.
The booking is still active as of this writing. Ola electric CEO Bhavish Aggarwal comments that this massive response to their Ola series S scooter is an indication that people are moving from ICE to EVs.
He further adds that folks who have registered for the Ola electric scooter have stepped into the EV revolution in the country.
The EV brand claims that its scooter will offer great speed, smooth handling, impressive range as well as a spacious boot. It will also use advanced technology like AI and Bluetooth connectivity.
Though the price is yet to be disclosed, Ola electric says it will be ‘aggressive’. Ola scooter will come in at least three color options, Matte Black, Blue, and pink.
This scooter may have variants named Ola S1 and S1 Pro which is evident from the leaked name registration patent files.
The electric scooter from OLA will be completely made in India at the company’s upcoming high-end production facility based in Tamil Nadu. For the last few months, Ola has been creating a lot of hype on this upcoming electric scooter.
Given the current grim situation of fuel price hikes in India, bookings of the Ola electric scooter points to the fact that people are changing their interest from combustion engine mobility to electric vehicles.
