Ola Electric Scooter Specifics
Ola Electric is getting ready to launch its first electric scooter in India. This electric scooter has been a long time coming to the Indian two-wheeler market. Its price is scheduled to be released at the end of this month. It will compete with electric scooters such as the Ather 450X from Ather Energy.
Ola Electric Scooter Range of Motion
The Etergo AppScooter serves as the foundation for Ola’s future electric scooter. In May 2020, Ola Cabs purchased Etergo, an electric scooter firm based in the Netherlands. The scooter is outfitted with a replaceable high-energy-density battery pack. According to the firm, it can travel up to 240 kilometres on a single charge. The Etergo AppScooter can go from 0 to 45 kilometres per hour in 3.9 seconds. Under the seat of this electric scooter is a storage compartment with a capacity of 50 litres.
Ola Electric Scooter Mileage
The Ola scooter can be charged up to 50% in 18 minutes using the company’s charging network. After that, it may easily travel up to 75 kilometres. When you buy an Ola scooter, you’ll also get a home charger unit to charge it at home.
Ola Electric Scooter Price
Before the launch of the Ola electric scooter, it is too early to speculate on the pricing. The first electric scooter from the startup is estimated to cost roughly Rs 1 lakh. However, this electric scooter is eligible for the recently amended FAME II incentive. The central government has lowered the burden on EV makers by boosting the subsidy on electric two-wheelers in order to accelerate the adoption and manufacturing of electric vehicles in India.
The Department of Heavy Industries recently enhanced the incentive (amount) for the purchase of electric two-wheelers to Rs 15,000 per kWh. Previously, all-electric vehicles received a 10,000-per-unit subsidy. That is, the new subsidy rate is Rs 5,000 higher per kWh than the previous subsidy rate. These vehicles include plug-in hybrids and strong hybrids.
