Ola Electric is grabbing headlines as it prepares to debut its first electric scooter, the Series S, in the coming days. On July 15, the business opened bookings for the Ola Series S (with a reservation fee of Rs 499 that is entirely refundable) and received one lakh orders for the e-scooter within 24 hours.
Ola Electric Series S
Direct-To-Consumer Sales Model
In our recent post, we have discussed Ola’s direct-to-consumer sales approach. The entire purchase process will take place between the manufacturer and the buyer. This strategy saves Ola money by avoiding the costs of establishing a large retail chain.
Ola is not focusing to have an established traditional dealership network, whoever wishes to buy an Ola e-scooter will be able to do so, no matter where they live!
The Ola Electric scooter, according to Tech2, will have a real-world range of up to 150 kilometres on a full charge.
The spy shots of the Ola electric scooter is hinting us with major information one of which is the enormous digital display on the bottom left, which displays a critical figure – 122 kilometres of stated range remaining, with the battery charge level at 87 per cent.
There are several functions like the virtual switch to unlock the seat and access the storage space underneath, signal bars at the bottom right, indicative of the scooter packing an e-SIM for connectivity features. Also the Colour options are expected to include matte black, matte pink, sky blue, white and more.
Many of us assumed that ola electric could surprise us with the idea of swappable batteries but it will come with fixed batteries as the prices wouldn’t be feasible for the people and also setting up a wide battery-swapping network would take a lot of time.
Also At the time of the Series S’s launch, Ola Electric will have fixed charge stations in 100 cities across India, with plans to expand to over 400 cities. Also, ola targets to sell online to every Indian city from the start.
