Bhavish Aggarwal, CEO of Ola Electric, revealed on Friday that the firm has sold 1,100 crores worth of Ola scooters in the first two days of sales. On August 15, the firm introduced the Ola S1 electric scooter, which comes in two versions: S1 and S1 Pro, each priced at Rs 99,999 and Rs 1,29,999 respectively.
On Twitter, Aggarwal said, “Day 2 of EV era was even better than Day 1! Crossed ₹1100Cr in sales in 2 days! Purchase window will reopen on Nov 1 so reserve now if you haven’t already. Thank you India for the love & trust. You are the revolution!”
Customers who paid a token price of Rs 499 for the scooters had to pay an advance amount of Rs 20,000 to finish the purchase process. Ola has temporarily halted sales of its electric vehicles, the S1 and S2 Pro. Aggarwal claimed on Wednesday that four Ola E-scooters are sold per second in the first 24 hours, without specifying the number of units sold.
“We will start the deliveries in mid-October,” Varun Dubey, Ola Electric’s CMO, told CNN-IBN regarding the deliveries.
Worth Of Your Purchase
The Ola S1 has a range of 181 kilometres, a peak speed of 115 kilometres per hour, and can be completely charged in about 40 minutes with a fast charger or roughly six hours with the portable charger that comes with the scooter and can be placed at home.
The scooter has a reverse mode, hill hold function, driving modes, and cruise control. It crosses the 0-40 kilometres per hour mark in less than 3 seconds.
It has a keyless lock and unlock system, as well as anti-theft and geo-fencing security features.
In addition, the firm has partnered with banks and financial institutions to offer an EMI plan that starts at Rs 2,999. The scooter is available in ten colours and features an 8.5 KW motor and 3.97 kWh battery pack developed in-house.
Cheapest E-Scooter In Indian Market
Because the number of orders had surpassed three lakh, the business was obliged to halt taking new ones at midnight on September 16th. This accomplishment might be interpreted as evidence that India is gradually warming to electric automobiles.
It started at Rs 1 lakh, which is less than rivals like the TVS iQube (Rs 1.01 lakh), Bajaj Chetak (Rs 1.42 lakh), and the Ather 450 (Rs 1.42 lakh) in Delhi.
Booking process of Ola Scooter
The EMIs for the Ola S1 begin at Rs 2,999, while the EMIs for the Ola S1 Pro begin at Rs 3,199. You have the option of taking out a loan or paying in advance. There will be no physical documentation necessary if the loan option is chosen because the entire procedure will be digital and online.
Email, SMS, and the Ola app will be used to convey the expected delivery month (Model-Variant-Pin Code combination).
From October 2021 onwards, direct delivery to clients’ houses will be available.
