This information was released right before the brand's MoveOS3 software upgrade and as it was getting ready to introduce a new version of the S1 electric scooter. During the holiday season, the Ola S1 Pro electric scooter was also offered at a flat Rs 10,000 discount, which undoubtedly increased sales.
Regarding the aforesaid faulty scooter, the Ola Electric S1 Pro has already been discovered to have a damaged suspension. A similar occurrence had previously been reported from Assam as well, but the brand learned from the scooter trip data that it had been caused by a high-speed hit.
It should be mentioned that the brand has been performing well in terms of sales despite these quality difficulties. According to Vahan Data, Ola Electric sold 9,634 units in September, more than doubling its sales of 3,421 units in August.
The business also disclosed that the re-launch of the Ola S1 scooter was the reason for its rapid development. On the first day of the buying window for the new scooter, more than 10,000 reservations were made.
The company also revealed its intentions to open physical showrooms across the nation a few weeks earlier. Bhavish Aggarwal, The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the EV manufacturer located in Tamil Nadu, revealed that it will open up to 200 physical showrooms, 20 of which are already open.
The competition for the Ola S1 Pro electric scooter is meantime getting stronger and more varied every day. Hero Motocorp, the largest motorcycle manufacturer in India, has now officially jumped on the electric vehicle bandwagon with the release of the Vida V1, their first electric scooter.
The Vida V1 is offered in two variations, Plus and Pro, just as the Ola S1. The price of the former is Rs 1.45 lakh, whereas the price of the latter is Rs 1.59 After FAME-II subsidies, but without state-level subsidies, both prices are listed.
The Ola S1 Pro electric scooter, which costs Rs 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom), is on sale this holiday season. The electric scooter is currently available for purchase from interested clients for Rs. 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom).More
