Ola S1 and S1 Pro electric scooter face delay in deliveries
Due to the global scarcity of semiconductor chips, Ola Electric has allegedly delayed the delivery of its Ola Ola S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters by two weeks to a month.
Ola Electric had planned to start client deliveries later in the month of November, but that has now been pushed back to mid to late December. Buyers of the first batch of S1 and S1 Pro scooters have received emails from Ola informing them that delivery would be delayed until the second part of December.
After its launch in August, Ola Electric CEO, Bhavish Aggarwal confirmed that the company had already registered Rs 1,100 crore worth of Ola electric scooters sales in just two days of the Ola S1 and S1 Pro going on sale, in mid-September. Ola Electric then shut down the sales of the scooters and said will continue taking orders from November 1.
The first set of deliveries, which were previously scheduled for October 25 to November 25, will now most likely occur between December 15 and December 30. Customers of the Ola electric scooter who paid the token amount of Rs 499, had to pay Rs 20,000 as advance to complete to pre-order of their S1 or S1 Pro scooter.
Ola Electric is already bringing its S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters on test rides around the country, with the goal of covering 1,000 cities and towns by mid-December.
The S1 gets a 2.89k unit while the S1 Pro gets a larger 3.5kWh battery. Ola claims that the S1 is capable of covering a range of 121km on a single full charge, while the S1 Pro is capable of adding 60kms to that figure once fully juiced up.
The Ola S1 is priced attractively at Rs 99,999 (ex-showroom) and the Ola S1 Pro is priced at Rs 1,29,999.
