The day is finally at hand — Ola Electric is poised to launch its first electric kickboard to India on the country’s 75th Independence Day, marking its entry into the rapidly evolving two-wheeler market. In recent months, Ola Electric has promised that its scooter will offer performance, range and features, but it will still be competitively priced, especially compared to other electric two-wheelers sold today, and in a moment we will find out how much the Ola electric kickboard will cost when deliveries start and all its technical data and characteristics.
The Ola Electric scooter has the same banana-shaped batteries as the Etergo Appscooter on which it is based; only here they are fixed and not removable. Tech2 has previously announced a top-quality Ola-e scooter — expected to be called the Ola S1 Pro — the battery has a capacity of nearly 3.6 kWh; among all the largest capacities of electric bicycles currently on sale in India, which would make it a FAME-II premium over 50,000 rubles.
Given Ola’s real-world range is probably up to 150 miles, its ARAI-certified range would still be higher, expected to be 180-190 kilometers. Cost-conscious buyers are also expected to have a cheaper model — with a different battery configuration and a much smaller range.
Ola Electric announced that its electric scooter is the leading acceleration in its class. It is currently unclear which scooters Ola considers to be its competitors, but from a perspective, the Ather 450X — which is currently the fastest accelerating e-scooter in India — accelerates from 0-40 km / h in 3.3 seconds and 0-60 km / h in 6.5 seconds. . The lower-end Ather 450 Plus, on the other hand, can drive 0-40 km / h in 3.9 seconds and 0-60 km / h in 8.29 seconds.
The Ola Electric Series S electric scooter also has the largest under-seat storage space in its class, which can accommodate two half-surface helmets. It also has a side stand disconnect function, a virtual switch to unlock the seat, which is integrated into the large colorimeter display, and e-SIM connectivity features. It is available in a total of ten color options.
The shoulder electric scooter has a single-sided telescopic front suspension and a horizontally mounted shock absorber, as well as grooves in the front and rear. The cushion foot pins fold evenly into the scooter body, and the Ola electric kickboard at the back gets a thick cushion handle and a bright lens Rear Light.
Ola Electric has fixed charging stations (including slow and fast charging points) in 100 cities across India at the time of the launch of the S-Series and will eventually cover over 400 cities. Its decision to sell directly to buyers online and deliver the scooter to its home (report first Tech2) also means that it can sell and service its e-scooter in virtually every city in India right from the first day.
