Ola Electric, India’s largest two-wheeler EV maker, increased the price of its flagship S1 Pro model by Rs 10,000, to Rs 1,20,149. (ex-showroom Delhi after FAME-II and state subsidies).
However, the Ola S1 is still available for Rs 85,099. On May 21, Ola launched the sale window for the S1 Pro. The company sold 12,000 automobiles, overtaking Hero Electric is the top seller in the sector.
“Amazed by the number of people attempting and crossing 200kms in single charge!! Almost 100! The Ola S1 easily breaks the official ARAI range too. Ola community has put to rest naysayers! We will give a free Gerua scooter to every verified achiever today” he said again on May 22.
Following multiple incidents in which Ola cars caught fire, the company recalled 1,441 electric scooters last month.
“As a precaution, we will undertake a full diagnostic and health check of the scooters in that specific batch, and as a result, we are issuing a voluntary recall of 1,441 cars,” ola electric said.
Ola Electric went on to say, “Our service engineers will evaluate these scooters and perform full diagnostics across all battery systems, temperature systems, and safety systems.”
