Ola Electric on Thursday started test rides for prospective customers for the S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters that have created quite a buzz in the Indian automotive market.

The test rides for the Ola S1 and S1 Pro scooters have been much awaited as many who have reserved a unit have been wanting to take a look at the product before completing the purchase process. Although refundable, even those who have initiated purchases have took to social media in the past to inquire about test rides. Many in Bengaluru opted to attend the test ride event which started Thursday. “Thrilled to see customers having so much fun riding the Ola S1 at our test ride camp in Bangalore," tweeted Ola Electric CEO Bhavish Aggarwal. “Soon in other cities!"

An Ola official confirmed to HT Auto that test rides in other cities commence from Friday onwards.
