As the external appearance suggests, Ola's upcoming electric scooter will come based on Etergo’s Appscooter, a Netherlands-based company that was acquired by Ola previously. The scooter will have a claimed range of 240 km but the Indian-spec model is rumored to have a lower full charge range. While the technical details on the scooter are scarce at the moment, it is said to feature a removable battery set up.

Ola plans to manufacture the scooter at its upcoming $330 million mega-factory in Krishnagiri district of Tamil Nadu. This facility has been claimed to be the world's largest e-scooter plant. To keep the overall costs in check, Ola is designing, engineering and manufacturing its own battery pack, motor, vehicle computer and software.
