Ola Electric has announced that it will be expanding the number of test ride facilities it offers around the nation. On Saturday, Ola Electric, a manufacturer of electric vehicles, said that it had increased the number of facilities for customers to test-ride its Ola S1 and S1 Pro scooters. Ola electric is looking forward to expanding its test ride network by 1,000 test ride locations to assure that a maximum number of people have the chance to have their hands on the S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters.
In the beginning, customers who have purchased or reserved either of the Ola S1 or S1 Pro electric scooters will have the privilege to test-ride the electric scooters, according to the business.
On November 10, Ola began offering test rides in Bengaluru, Delhi, Ahmedabad, and Kolkata. On November 19, the company expanded its service to include five more cities: Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Mumbai, and Pune.
Because of the overwhelming reaction to Ola S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters, Ola Electrics ensures that its test ride facility is expanded to the broadest possible number of cities, providing possible exposure to its electric scooters. Ola Electrics has set a goal to make test rides available to the general public by the 15th of this month. The enormous response to Ola’s electric scooters, according to the company, served as the source of motivation for taking this step.
Ola’s Chief Business Officer, Arun Sirdeshmukh, is pleased with the positive reception to the company’s electric scooters. He emphasised his delight by stating that thousands of consumers are interested in testing the Ola scooters daily. They seem to be impressed by the best-in-class design, performance, technology, and ride quality that the Ola S1 and S1 Pro scooters provide.
The firm will significantly increase the number of test rides facilities to customers during the next few weeks, expanding to over 1,000 cities and towns throughout India by mid-December to ensure that every consumer has access to test rides. “This is the most rapid nationwide scale-up of test rides in history, and it represents a revolution in the automobile industry, made possible by our direct-to-consumer approach,” Arun Sirdeshmukh said in a statement.
According to the announcement, customer test rides will begin rolling out in the next batch of cities on November 27 in Surat, Thiruvananthapuram, Kozhikode, Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada, Coimbatore, Vadodara, Bhubaneswar, Tiruppur, Jaipur, and Nagpur.
In August of this year, Ola Electric debuted two electric scooters, the Ola S1 and S1 Pro. Ola said in September that sales of its first electric scooter had exceeded Rs 1,100 crore in only two days. Many believe the below reasons play a seminal role in eliciting such huge attention and sell.
The Ola S1 and S1 Pro Offer Affordable Mileage
Ola Electric makes a huge claim about its scooters capable of covering a long distance on a single charge, which many people believe to be critical when considering whether or not to purchase an electric vehicle. While the S1 model claims to be able to go 121 kilometres before having to be recharged, the more costly S1 Pro boasts of being able to travel around 180 kilometres before needing to be recharged. However, the thing to be noted here is we still lack suitable infrastructure for electric vehicles.
Ola S1 and S1 Pro Specifications
The Ola Electric S1 scooter’s goal is to strike a balance between riding performance and a variety of features, some of which are industry firsts. In addition to three riding modes – Normal, Sport, and Hyper – as well as rapid acceleration and a steady high-speed ride, there are additional features such as a giant display screen with an Android-based operating system, app control, speakers, a USB connector for charging, and so on.
Ola S1 and S1 Pro: How Much Do They Cost?
The Ola S1 electric scooter comes in two variants: the S1 and the S1 Pro. The S1 is the more affordable of the two, priced at Rs 1 Lakh, while the latter variant comes with a price tag of Rs 1.30 Lakh. (ex-showroom). Both the scooters come in the price range of most of the petrol run scooters.
