While the S1 is priced at Rs 99,999, the S1 Pro electric scooter costs Rs 1,29,999. Till June, the users of e-scooters will get the hyperchargers free of cost

If you have ordered the Ola S1 electric scooter, and is yet to ride the engineering marvel, then we have some good news for you. Ola chairman and group executive officer Bhavish Aggarwal announced that the company is producing nearly a thousand units of the Ola S1 and S1 Pro scooters every day. He also informed that Ola will soon open the purchase window for the customers who are yet to place an order for this vehicle.  

Aggarwal took to Twitter to share a photograph of the new scooters in production and wrote, “Futurefactory now producing almost 1000 scooters a day. In pic below: production just for today so far! Opening up purchase window for remaining customers soon. Will share.”

Earlier, the company had claimed that it has received more than 90,000 bookings of its S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters. Recently, Aggarwal said that all units of the e-scooters, which the customers have purchased online, have been dispatched from its facility.

In August 2021, Ola ventured into the green mobility space with the launch of its electric scooters, S1 and S1 Pro priced at Rs 99,999 and Rs 1,29,999, respectively.

Interestingly, the company had opened bookings at Rs 499. Initially, they had planned to start deliveries in October 2021 but then it was pushed back to November. Later, it was further moved to the second half of December 2021. The company cited the global semiconductor shortage issue for postponement.

Aggarwal also thanked the RTOs for working with the company holidays to scale up this new digital process. “Lots of learnings for us on varied RTO systems, regulations across states. Will be faster with registration in future! Also, stay tuned for the next purchase window, opening very soon!!,” he tweeted.

However, the CEO did not reveal any detail on the number of units sold. But in September when Ola e-scooters went for online purchase, Aggarwal had said that it sold scooters worth over Rs 600 crore on the first day of the sale.
