Ola Electric scooter launch claim for this month of July itself. It could be the next big thing in the electric 2-wheeler space…
OLA is all set to launch its first electric scooter in India – we have said this multiple times! But it appears we are closest to the scoot going by the recent developments.
The ride-sharing firm’s CEO Bhavish Aggarwal recently tweeted about the scooter with a photo of himself riding the e-scooter. He quoted that “ready or not, a revolution is coming“. And as per a report at Autocar, we may see the much-hyped scooter getting released in the coming weeks of July.
OLA’s Electric scooter is based on the Dutch start-up Etergo’s Appscooter. Back in 2020 OLA acquired this company and has revised the existing model to make the production version of the scooter India-specific.
As of now, there is no information on the powertrain of the OLA electric scooter but Ola says it will be segment best.
Normally, we have seen electric scooters in India offer around 75 to 80 km of range in a full charge. Ola’s first may come with range of 80-100 km.
As seen in a recent video, the OLA electric scooter will offer large boot space that can accommodate two helmets. It will sport a single telescopic suspension at the front.
Following the modern-day aesthetics, the OLA scooter will also come with all LED lighting setup. The electromobility brand’s debut scooter is under production in its Tamil Nadu facility.
There is no mention of the scooter’s price but as per the hearsay, OLA is trying to butt heads with the ICE-based 125cc scooters. So, expect aggressive pricing.

With swanky looks, good specs and an aggressive pricing, Ola can disrupt the electric scooter market – considering the massive plans they have announced.
The government is also pushing electric mobility and has waived off the registration fees on EVs apart from increasing the subsidy in the FAME II program.
