If you like electric scooters, and you want to buy them, then wait a while because Ola Company is preparing to launch an electric scooter. Ola has started the pre-bookings for the electric scooter on its website, and the scooter will be launched in the coming few weeks.
We had mentioned in our previous post that after the announcement of pre-booking, the company has received more than one lakh bookings of OLA electric scooters.
Before the launch of OLA Electric Scooters, here are some important things to know about it.
Large Space for Production
This is OLA’s first two-wheeler that will be manufactured at the Ola Future factory in Tamil Nadu. It is being built on 500 acres at a cost of 2,400 crores. The company claims that this factory will have the capacity to produce 2 lakh units every year.
Ola Electric Scooter Variants
The Ola electric scooter is likely to be offered in three variants and could be placed in the S series. The company has also filed a patent for the other two names – S1 and S1 Pro which could be additional variants/trims of the two-wheeler.
The Ola electric scooter can be built based on the Itargo Appscooter which is powered by an automated high-power-density battery. It claims to be able to run 240 kilometers without recharging. However, in the real world, it offers a range of about 150 kilometers on a single charge.

It will take time to get fully recharged at the charging station in just 2.30 hours. However, if plugged into a regular home charging point, the OLA electric two-wheeler can take up to 5.30 hours to fully charge from 0.
