The Ola S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters will finally reach the road, as the firm prepares to begin shipments on December 15. As stated by Money Control, in October this year deliveries were scheduled to occur, but they are now occurring almost two months later.
Ola blamed the postponement on a global lack of chips and electrical components. After selling Rs 1,100 crore worth of electric scooters in a two-day auction in September, the business first stated that deliveries would begin in October. It was moved back to between October 25 and November 25. Buyers were notified on November 21 of another delay, moving the delivery date back to December 15-December 30.
The CEO of Ola Electric, Bhavish Aggarwal tweeted a caption along with a video stating, Gaddi Nikal Chuki”. The video posted shows that the first batch comprising Ola Electric scooters has been released from the manufacturing unit. They are all set for deliveries across the nation. Ola is also planning to organise a special delivery program for the first fifty consumers who will receive scooters in Bengaluru.
About Ola scooters
Ola Electric scooters were first launched on 15th August in India. The Ola S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters are valued ex-showroom at Rs 99,999 and Rs 1,29,999, respectively. Throughout a critical period when the business was fighting against by the clock to deliver its scooters, the company successfully raised around Rs 398.3 crore from investors including Vijay Shekhar Sharma’s VSS Investco, Temasek, DST Global’s Rahul Mehta, Edelweiss, and IIFL. The company issued 371 shares at a price of Rs 1.07 crore apiece.
S1 introduces technology that is several centuries ahead of what is currently available on the market. It does not have a physical key and connects to your phone via its “digital key” function. It also allows you to detect when you’re close by and unlock automatically. As you go away, it will also lock. It has a cross array, in-house AI voice recognition algorithms, and the sharpest, brightest 7-inch touchscreen display ever installed in a scooter.
The 110/70 R12 tyres, front single fork suspension and rear mono-shock suspension, provide significantly better road grip and a more enjoyable riding experience. In addition to a cruise mode that makes driving easy and practical, it provides a reverse option that simplifies parking and exiting tight spaces. Pillion passengers will appreciate how pleasant their trip will be, thanks to a strong grasp rail for stability, a side step, and contoured seats. The scooters also include speech recognition, which allows you to do your important duties fast without having to navigate the menu.
