Ola Electric is the most awaited electric scooter in India and the company will now be offering first test rides of its electric scooters Ola S1 and Ola S1 Pro. The test rides will be offered from November 10. 

And now, Bhavish Aggarwal, the founder of Ola Electric has announced the first Hypercharger of the company.

Ola Electric Founder Reveals Images Of Hypercharger

Ola Electric founder Bhavish Aggarwal shared images of a Ola S1 electric scooter charging at the Ola Electric’s first Hypercharger on Twitter.

Reports are that Ola Electric will set up more than 1 lakh charging stations under this Hypercharger network across 400 cities in India. The charging stations will be able to charge the battery of the bike for 18 mins, and promises a range of 75 km.

Aggarwal has shared visuals of his ride to the Ola Future factory in Tamil Nadu from Bengaluru. The pictures show a picture of the 7-inch touchscreen panel with the route between the two points marked out on a map.

There also is a video with Aggarwal riding the electric scooter. 

Ola Electric: Specifications And Prices

Ola Electric has also revealed the scooter can be charged using a standard 5A socket, or at one of its ‘Hypercharger’ charging stations, which are going live in over 100 cities at this time and will eventually cover over 400 cities.

The bike will come with fixed batteries and an expected range of up to 150 kilometres on a full charge. There also are reports that under the FAME-II scheme, Ola’s electric scooter will also be eligible for a significant subsidy, more than Rs. 50,000.

The Ola Series S e-scooter is predicted to have a range of more than 100 kilometres. The Ola Electric scooter is estimated to cost between Rs 80,000 and Rs 1.1 lakh when it is released in the coming days. The electric scooter comes with a battery capacity of around 3.6 kWh, which is among the maximum capacities in the scooters that are available in the Indian market today.

There is a possibility that Ola will not be pricing the electric scooter at or more than Rs. 1.50 lakh, as electric scooters that are priced more than Rs 1.50 lakh (ex-factory) do not qualify for incentives.

In fact, even if the ex-showroom price is higher than the ex-factory price, the FAME-II subsidy will make sure that the effective price to the end buyer will be more than Rs. 1 lakh. This means that if Ola fixes the price of the bike lesser than Rs. 1.50 lakh, the end price will be well under Rs. 1 lakh.
