Ola Scooter price in India and availability
Ola Electric has started accepting pre-bookings of its first electric scooter. Starting July 15, customers can pre-book their Ola Scooter by paying ₹499, which is refundable.
Ola says that the customers who pre-book their scooter will get priority delivery. Those interested can head over to olaelectric.com to reserve their Ola Scooter now.
As far as the final pricing is concerned, Ola Electric has not yet revealed the full price of the Ola Scooter. The company says that it will be “competitively priced”, and there’s speculation that it could be above INR 1,00,000. However, this is not official yet. We will know more in the coming days.
Ola Scooter design
The Ola Scooter’s design is minimalistic and if it looks industrial, it’s because the company has hired the former designer of Bentley, Aston Martin and Jaguar – Wayne Burgess.
The Ola Scooter sports an all-LED design – the headlamp, indicator and tail lights are all LED, which should keep the power consumption on the lower end, and offer adequate illumination at the same time.
Ola Scooter features
Not a lot is known about the Ola Scooter in terms of features yet, but the company’s chairman and chief executive officer of Ola, Bhavish Aggarwal, revealed some key aspects.
According to Aggarwal, the Ola Scooter will offer keyless access – so you can unlock it using the app on your phone. It is likely that there will be an option to use a physical key, too.
Another feature that we know of, as of now, is that the Ola Scooter can charge up to 50% in 18 minutes, offering a range of 75 kilometres. Extrapolating from this, it would seem that the total range of the Ola Scooter could be around the 140-150 kilometre mark. It remains to be seen if there will be different driving modes, which will likely impact the overall range as well.
Lastly, Aggarwal also revealed that the Ola Scooter will offer “biggest in-class” boot space – which can be useful if you go grocery shopping.
We should know more about the Ola Scooter’s features over the next few days.
This new electric scooter promises 240KM range on a 70-minute charge, could be priced under ₹1,20,000
