Ola Electric’s Ola S1 and Ola S1 Pro have become one of the most awaited electric scooters. The company will be entering the competition against the likes of Hero Electric, Okinawa Autotech, Ather Energy, Revolt and PureEV. Currently, the market leader is Hero Electric, according to data for the month of October.
While Ola has managed to grab eyeballs with the features and driving range of Ola S1 and Ola S1 Pro, it is yet to deliver on the promises made to buyers. The company’s manufacturing facility in Chennai could help it boost to the top ranks in the electric two-wheeler segment.
