Ola Electric S1 and S1 Pro scooters can now be purchased entirely online. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to get one delivered home.
If you go around the market looking for a showroom to buy an Ola Electric scooter, you would be left disappointed. This is because the process of purchase for the Ola Electric S1 and S1 Pro is completely online and the purchase window has been opened today - Wednesday, September 8.
Launched on August 15 at a starting price of ₹1 lakh, Ola Electric scooters are making massive promises and have received a strong initial response.
While Ola Electric had opened pre-launch bookings in the month of July and had received over 1 lakh reservations within 24 hours, the company has now opened the window for anyone looking to complete the entire payment process. The company is also following a direct-to-home sales model which means once a prospective buyer completes the formalities, he or she can expect the electric scooter to be delivered straight to a preferred or mentioned location.
But how does one complete the payment processes or even make use of the numerous financial and EMI-related schemes on offer?
Here's your guide to buying an Ola Electric scooter:
Step 1 - Anyone who has made a reservation for either of the two variants can log back onto the Ola Electric website to complete the payment process. Purchasing a unit early may also help in getting priority delivery but the company notes that the purchase process will remain open only till the time stocks last.
Step 2 - Select between either the Ola Electric S1 or Ola Electric S1 Pro variants. Next, choose from the 10 available colour options and the two finishes - matte or gloss. It is possible to change choices from ones that may have been selected at the time of reservations.
Step 3 - Ola is assuring of absolutely safe payment channels online. The company has also tied up with numerous financial institutions for loans and EMI options. Financing is also available with EMIs starting at ₹2,999- for Ola S1, and ₹3,199 - for Ola S1 Pro, courtesy Ola Financial Services.
Just in case you do not require financing, an advance payment of ₹20,000 or ₹25,000 - depending on variant selected, can be made. The remaining amount can be paid once the invoice is received.
Down-payment and advance are entirely refundable but only till before the unit is from the company's factory. A delivery date will be provided once the purchasing formalities are complete.
It is important to note that you can even opt to insure the Ola Electric scooters using the Ola and Ola Electric apps. “A base policy of ‘1-year Own Damage and 5 years Third Party’ is mandatory for registration," the company notes.
Deliveries of Ola Electric scooters will start from October. And if you want to first experience the products in the flesh, test rides too are slated to start from the next month.
