In the initiative, most people are joining to push the usage of electric scooters, and Ola has seemingly joined in their unique way.
Are you wondering how they joined this journey into electric scooters? Well, Bhavish Aggarwal, the co-founder of Ola, himself believes that people should not operate petrol-powered scooters after 2025. He says this as it is incredibly harmful effects on the environment.
Price of Ola Electric Scooters
To back his beliefs up, Ola has launched S1 and S1 Pro, which start at the price of Rs. 99,999.
Let’s learn a bit more about the views and motives behind this effort for sustainability.
Bhavish Aggarwal’s Statements
Bhavish Aggarwal is a firm believer that people should prioritize sustainability over all else. He said, “The only true solution for us is to reject petrol and commit to electrification genuinely completely. After 2025, “no petrol two-wheeler should be sold in India, and it is possible to make this transition to sustainability in four years.”
Further, Aggarwal made a statement during a meeting in Bengaluru saying, “It will be the best scooter ever made, not just the best electric scooter. We have to make technology the best in the world, and that’s what we’re doing. We’ve been saying we’ll build our technology. We built our technology. All of this has been done by Indian teams based here in this office, and it’s world-leading.”
Analysts’ Opinion on Ola’s Move
According to analysts, Ola making this move will shake the world’s largest EV market. Ola will now compete with major manufactures like Ather Energy, Hero Electric, Bajaj’s Chetak, and TVS Motor Company.
If your thinking that the price for the S1 and S1 Pro Scooters from Ola is exorbitant, you’re wrong. The prices for these scooters are just at par with other prices in the market.
This step taken by Ola to launch electric scooters is one to praise. Along with the comfort of their travelers, they have kept in mind the well-being of our Earth. This initiative is a healthy and smart step into the future!
