Ola Electric has opened the bookings for its upcoming e-scooter in India. The Ola Electric scooter reservation can be made for a token amount of Rs 499, which is completely refundable, through the official company website.
Within hours of the Ola Electric scooter bookings commencing on July 15, many customers faced issues with the reservation process as the company had not anticipated the “crazy demand” for the e-scooter and didn’t plan enough scalability of the website. However, the issues were fixed soon.

The Ola Electric scooter will get a powerful motor paired with a lithium-ion battery. The company is claiming class-leading acceleration and superior range for the e-scooter. Its largest-in-class boot has enough space for two helmets. In terms of features, the e-scooter gets an LED lighting setup, fully digital instrument panel, front disc brake and alloy wheels, among others.
The Ola Electric launch will soon take place in India. The Ola Electric price is expected to be close to Rs 1 lakh (on-road, after all the subsidies). Once introduced, it will rival the likes of the Bajaj Chetak, Ather 450X and TVS iQube Electric.
