  • Ola is scheduled to launch a new scooter in India on October 22.
  • The company is expected to launch a new electric scooter for under ₹80,000.
  • The scooter is expected to offer a 100 km range on a single charge.

Bhavish Aggarwal-led Ola recently re-launched the Ola S1, the company’s second electric scooter in India, with an affordable price tag. The company is now expected to introduce a cheaper electric scooter in the country ahead of Diwali.

Ola is scheduled to launch a new variant of the Ola S1 in India on October 22. The launch has been confirmed by the company’s chief executive officer Bhavish Aggarwal.

Aggarwal, in his tweet, mentioned that the October 22 launch will be “one of the biggest announcements ever from Ola”.

According to a report by Business Today, the new variant of the Ola S1 will be the cheapest offering in the line-up and will be priced under ₹80,000. The company’s current Ola S1 and Ola S1 Pro scooters are priced at ₹99,999 and ₹1,39,999, respectively.


The new Ola S1 will be one of a large brand’s most affordable two-wheeler electric vehicles.

“Planning something BIG for our launch event this month! Will accelerate the #EndICEAge revolution by at least 2 years,” Bhavish Aggarwal said in a tweet.

The new Ola electric scooter is expected to retain most of the features as the Ola S1. However, it is expected to come with a smaller battery that offers a range of 100 km on a single charge.

If the new Ola electric scooter is priced under ₹80,000, it will directly take on popular two-wheelers such as Honda Activa 6G and the TVS Jupiter.

In addition, Ola is also expected to roll out an update to the Move OS 3 that will bring features like hill hold control, hyper charging, key sharing, sounds, calling functionality and more.

The teaser shared by the company hints at custom speedometers as the video shows an analogue dial. It also shows RGB lights in the headlamp - which might also be seen in the upcoming scooter.
