“An electric revolution is about to come with Ola’s electric scooter,” says rapper Raftaar astride a shiny new Ola electric scooter in the company’s new promotional video.
While Ola is pulling out all the stops ahead of the launch of its electric scooter on August 15th, it has roped rapper Dilin Nair, stage name Raftaar, in its latest promo.
Ola Electric tweeted that the start would be at 2pm on Sunday.
While official specifications are yet to be confirmed, the scooter is believed to have a single telescopic front suspension, two LED headlights, and a claimed 150 km range under normal driving conditions as well as driving modes. A top speed of over 100 km / h was also teased by Aggarwal.
Ola said it received bookings through a lakh after opening pre-orders from across the country. The company has also suggested having the scooters home-delivered, based on Elon Musk’s Tesla Motors model.
Ola is planning a “Hypercharger” setup in 400 Indian cities with over 100 one-lakh locations and touchpoints. The “Hyperfactory” currently under construction should be able to produce ten million scooters per year from next year, with the first phase supposedly shortly before construction.
