The e-scooter will have a ‘smiley face’ headlamp
The Ola Electric Scooter will have a single-piece seat with the largest-in-class storage compartment below it, an indicator-mounted front apron, a pillion grab rail, and a ‘smiley face’ headlamp.
It should house a Bluetooth-enabled 7.0-inch color touchscreen instrument cluster with support for cloud connectivity.
The two-wheeler will ride on blacked-out alloy wheels and shall boast a full-LED lighting setup.
It should have a top-speed of around 90km/h
The Ola Electric Scooter will draw power from a non-removable Lithium-ion battery pack that can be charged from 0-50% in only 18 minutes to deliver a range of 75km.
The two-wheeler should accelerate from 0-45km/h in roughly four seconds. It is expected to have a top-speed of around 90km/h and a total range of approximately 150km on a single charge.
There will be disc brakes on both the wheels
In terms of safety equipment, the Ola Electric Scooter will be equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels. A combined braking system or ABS might also be available for better handling.
Suspension duties on the electric vehicle will be taken care of by telescopic forks on the front end and a horizontally-mounted shock absorber on the rear side.
