The wait to buy an Ola Electric scooter has now become longer with the Tamil Nadu-based electric two-wheeler manufacturer pushing back the fresh purchase window to next month. Ola Electric issued a statement on Sunday saying that it is ‘busy fulfilling existing orders’ it has received so far in an ‘unprecedented demand’ for its S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters.

The EV maker announced that the new date for purchase window is December 16, instead of November 1 as was announced earlier. “We will be opening our purchase window for fresh orders on 16th December, 2021. We will reach out to you in the coming weeks to schedule your test ride," read the statement Ola Electric shared with its customers.

Ola S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters were launched earlier this year. The S1 electric scooter from Ola Electric has created a whole lot of buzz in the Indian automotive market and is the first of several battery-powered options planned by the company. Ola S1 has been priced at 1 lakh (ex-showroom), and the S1 Pro has been priced at 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom).

The S1 electric scooter has a claimed range of around 120 kms on single charge. It is available in 10 colour options, and sources power from an 8.5 kW electric motor paired with a 3.97 kWh battery pack. The S1 Pro electric scooter comes with more range of 180 kms on single charge, and has a top speed of 115 kmph.

Located in Tamil Nadu, the Ola Futurefactory is currently home to the S1 electric scooters. Spread over 500 acres, it has a stated capacity of rolling out one unit every two seconds, as per company officials. What also makes the facility unique is that the workforce is entirely women and that at full capacity, Ola Electric will employ 10,000 people which would make it the world's largest women-only factory.
