Ola CEO shared a video with the tweet showing hundreds of Ola S1 Scooters lined up inside the ride-hailing aggregator turned EV manufacturer's 'Futurefactory'.
Ola Electric had opened pre-launch bookings of its electric scooters in July 2021 for ₹499 and had received 1 lakh orders in just 24 hours. The delivery of this electric scooter was delayed despite the schedule being set for the delivery. After being under pressure from customers for delays in delivery, the company stated deliveries of the e-scooter on December 16 last year. The first 100 scooters were delivered to customers in Chennai and Bengaluru.
Ola Electric launched its S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters last year that have been designed in line with the Etergo AppScooter. The Ola electric scooters have already started despatching to the consumers and received a mixed response from them. While the features and design of the Ola scooters have received a positive response from the consumers, the real-life range of the scooters have been claimed to be much lower than the range the EV company announced.
Ola Electric's S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters are being manufactured at the company's plant that has been set up on a 500-acre site in the Krishnagiri district of Tamil Nadu. The factory will have a capacity to manufacture 2 million e-scooters during its initial phase and up to 10 million units in the future. Last week, Ola CEO said that the factory is producing almost 1000 scooter every day.
