Ola electric scooter to be launched on August 15

Ola Electric's e-scooter will lock horns with the Ather 450X, Bajaj Chetak and TVS iQube.

Ola Electric has announced that its first electric scooter will be launched in the Indian market on August 15, 2021. Pre-bookings are already open.

Ola's first electric scooter is expected to be based on the Etergo Appscooter. It is likely to use a 6 kW electric motor, powered by a swappable battery offering a maximum range of 240 km. The final specifications and other details will be shared at the time of launch.

Reports suggest that Ola will adopt a 'direct-to-customer' sales model, wherein everything from bookings, documentation and loan applications will be processed online. The scooters will be delivered to the customer's doorstep as well.

The company is setting up a separate logistics department that will oversee registration and deliveries. For after-sales support, Ola will send technicians to the customer's residence.
