“We sold 4 scooters every second. In fact, in just 24 hours, we sold scooters worth over 600 crores. That’s more, in value terms than what the entire 2W industry sells in a day. Make no mistake, the age of EVs is here. Yesterday also established that with the right product, India has huge pent up demand and a massive domestic market for two-wheeler EVs. We must leverage this to drive innovation, a robust local EV ecosystem and make India not only a big EV market but also a global EV manufacturing hub,” Aggarwal said in a blog post.


Customers can book the Ola scooters only till today midnight (September 16), before order books are full

Aggarwal also noted that today (September 16, 2021) will be the last day for consumers to purchase these scooters. Those customers who’ve already reserved will be given preference and can make the purchase until midnight tonight. The Ola S1 is priced at ₹ 1 lakh, while the S1 Pro is priced at ₹ 1.30 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom). The prices drop based on state subsidies across the country.
