New Delhi: A day after the beginning of the sale process of Ola S1 Electric, the company's co-founder Bhavish Aggarwal revealed that “floodgates to the revolution” are open. Aggarwal said that Ola was selling two electric scooters every second as India is “rejecting” petrol.
“Floodgates to the revolution are truly open! We’re selling 2 scooters every second! India is rejecting petrol and choosing electric,” Aggarwal tweeted.
After a few minutes, Aggarwal updated that the frequency of the sale is now four electric scooters per second. “Correction, it’s now 4 scooters sold per sec,” he said in another tweet.
The electric scooter is available for purchase on the Ola App only currently, and not on the website. The sale was in the beginning scheduled to start on September 8 but the company was asked to postpone it for a week as they faced "technical issues" in making the website for purchases live for customers.
"Bring the revolution home! Ola S1 purchase is rolling out now! We're opening it in the order of reservation. Look for your invitation email or check the Ola app to know when it's live for you! #JoinTheRevolution," Aggarwal earlier tweeted.
Customers had to pay an advance of Rs 20,000 for the purchase of Ola S1/Ola S1 Pro and the rest of the amount before the shipment. The advance is refundable in case the customers have to cancel the booking before the scooter is shipped from the Ola Futurefactory, according to Ola. The delivery of scooters is expected to start from October.
“You will need to pay an advance of ₹20,000 for purchasing your Ola S1/Ola S1 Pro, and the rest before shipment. You can also avail convenient EMI options when you make the rest of the payment,” the company said in a statement.
The customers will be updated about the tentative delivery date within 72 hours of their booking. They can download the latest version of the Ola app and click on the Ola Scooter banner on the home page to the purchase process.
