The first deliveries of Ola Electric’s electric scooters, the S1 and S1 Pro, are allegedly moving forward. Due to a lack of chipsets and electronic parts, the first batch of deliveries, which was supposed to start on November 30, will now take place between December 15 and the end of the month.
According to a report by Business Standard, the decision was reached during a meeting between Ola Electric’s factory team and the worldwide supply chain.
According to the article, the corporation apologised to consumers for the delay and has stopped taking new reservations until the chip shortfall is resolved.
Ola Electric began offering electric scooter test rides in a few places around the country earlier this month. The S1 and S1 Pro’s popularity can be gauged by the fact that the business sold over Rs 1,100 crore worth of devices within their initial buying window (September 15 and 16, 2021).
The Ola S1 costs Rs 99,999 (ex-showroom) without subsidies, and the Ola S1 Pro costs Rs 1,29,999 (ex-showroom) (ex-showroom). The Ola S1 costs Rs 85,099 (ex-showroom) in New Delhi after FAME II and state subsidies, while the Ola S1 Pro costs Rs 1,10,149 (ex-showroom).
Standard features on the S1 and S1 Pro include LED headlamps with LED DRLs, LED taillamps, LED turn indicators, electronic steering control lock, 7-inch touchscreen instrument cluster with 1.8GHz Octacore processor, blacked-out grab rails, flush-fitting footpegs, 12-inch aluminium alloy wheels with a disc at both ends, and electronic steering control lock (220mm front and 180mm rear).
WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and OTA updates are all supported. Hill hold, cruise control, and voice assistance are all included with the S1 Pro.
The S1 comes in a variety of colours, including Porcelain White, Neo Mint, Coral Glam, Jet Black, and Marshmellow. Liquid Silver, Millennial Pink, Anthracite Grey, Midnight Blue, and Matte Black are among the five new colours available for the S1 Pro.
