The Ola Electric scooter has been in the news since before its launch and is getting a tremendous response from customers. Ola Electric CEO Bhavish Agarwal said on Saturday that the Ola electric scooter has received 1 lakh bookings in just 24 hours of pre-launch booking. Which makes it the most pre-booked scooter in the world.
Ola Electric had announced on July 15 on its official website to start booking on a token of Rs 499. Bhavish Agarwal said in his tweet, “This is the beginning of India’s electric vehicle revolution. Thanks to the 100,000+ people who joined us and booked our scooters.”
Bhavish Agarwal said in a statement, “I am thrilled with the response to this first electric vehicle across India. The unprecedented demand is a clear indication of the shift in consumer preference to electric vehicles.” “Transforming the world into sustainable mobility is a big step in our mission. I thank all the customers who have booked wet scooters and participated in the EV revolution. This is just the beginning,” Agarwal said.
The new wet Ola electric scooter is expected to be available for sale in the country by the end of this month. Ola Electric claims that the Scoot has been given a large boot space. In addition, the new scooter will have the option to start the car without a key. It will also be launched with smartphone connectivity. Ola claims that the electric scooter will be launched with ergonomic seating.
After the announcement of the Ola Electric scooter, there is mixed feedback from the netizens. People are praising Ola for its environment-friendly approach. On the other hand, some people say the big bump at the front footrest won’t allow people to utilize that space for carrying luggage or water cans for which Indian people prefer scooters the most. Also, many social media users are raising concerns that the company hasn’t provided many details while asking people to pre-book their product. Source
