The upcoming Ola S1 electric scooter will be available in five different colour options. Ola CEO claimed that this scooter was influenced by the success of the Ola S1 Pro which has sold more than 70,000 units in seven months.
The new Ola scooter will be built at the Ev manufacturer's Future Factory, which is claimed to be the largest two-wheeler factory in the world. Ola S1 Pro has received a pretty strong response since its launch in the Indian market. It competes with rivals like Bajaj Chetak, TVS iQube etc. However, the scooter faced several challenges as well. The biggest among them was when the Ola scooter was spotted in flame a few months back.
