Ola Electric may face a massive backlash on the internet because to quality difficulties, safety concerns, and the iconic instance of an Ola S1 Pro spontaneously combusting. However, in terms of sales, the new electric vehicle manufacturer has climbed to second place in the Indian market. Ola Electric outsold its immediate competitor, Ather Energy, by a large margin in March 2022, selling 9,127 units of S1 Pro.
Ather 450X Sales March 2022
In March 2022, Ather Energy sold 2226 units of their 450X electric scooters, compared to 9,127 units of Ola S1 Pro. Ola Electric saw a 134 percent increase in sales month over month in February 2022, selling 3,907 units of S1 Pro. Ola Electric has already surpassed Hero Electric, India’s leading electric two-wheeler manufacturer, which sold 11,023 electric scooters in March 2022.
Other EV Sales
However, unlike the TVS iQube and Bajaj Chetak, which are exclusively available in a few cities, the Ola S1 Pro can be had in any part of India thanks to Ola Electric’s direct-to-home delivery service. It’s a first-in-industry ownership experience that doesn’t require a physical presence of sales and service outlets.
Ola S1 Pro will be available in August 2021, featuring an 8.5 kW electric motor and a 3.97 kWh non-removable lithium-ion battery. The S1 Pro’s 8.5 kW electric engine provides 58 Nm of peak torque and can propel the scooter to a top speed of 115 km/h in the Hyper riding mode, one of the scooter’s three riding modes. The scooter’s 3.97 kWh battery, on the other hand, claims to have a maximum riding range of 181 km in Eco mode and takes 6 hours and 30 minutes to fully charge using the 750 W charger that comes with it. The Ola S1 Pro has priced at Rs 1.30 lakh on the road.
