Ola Electric has achieved a whooping sales of Rs 600 Cr+ sales in just one day. The brand commenced the sale of Ola S1 and S1 Pro yesterday in the country. To everyone’s amazement, Ola received a massive response by selling four Ola electric scooters every second. Earlier, it was supposed to go on sale on September 8. However, due to technical glitches on the two-wheeler manufacturer’s site, the sale was pushed to a further date. Both e-scooters can be purchased via the Ola app only.
The Chennai-based electric vehicle manufacturer has prioritized customers based on their dates of reservation. So all the customers who have booked the scooter by paying Rs 499 will be intimated about their purchase window via SMS, email, and the Ola app. Today is the last day for consumers to purchase electric scooters. Interested buyers can get the bookings done today before the end of the day by paying Rs 20,000 in advance and lock in the introductory price.
Ola electric scooter was launched last month at a starting price of Rs 99,999 (ex-showroom). The e-scooter is sold in two variants - S1 and S1 Pro. The bookings for the scooters commenced on July 15. The company further claims that the purchase process will be fully digital including the online loan procedure. Furthermore, the e-scooters will be delivered at the doorstep of the customers starting from October.
