Riders will be able to operate the reverse mode on the e-scooter at a high speed as well, the company hinted. "You can reverse the Ola Scooter at an unbelievable pace," it wrote on its official Twitter handle.

The scooter is currently available for bookings at a refundable token amount of 499. The company has so far received bookings from over 1,000 cities across the country since opening it in late July.
