Earlier, the e-scooter sale was to begin on September 8. Due to technical issues on the website, the company postponed it by a week to September 15. The scooters are slated for delivery from October 2021. Once the buyer makes the payment, he/she will be conveyed about the delivery of the vehicle within 72 hours. The vehicles can now be bought on the Ola App only.
The Ola Electric S1 and S1 Pro scooters were launched in the market on August 15 with a starting price of Rs 1 lakh. The company had witnessed an overwhelming response from customers after the launch.
