Ola filed trademarks for ‘Series S, S1 and S1 Pro’, which points towards the likely names and variants that the electric scooter could have. Our understanding is that the Series S will be name of the Ola Electric scooter range and the first scooter to be launched will have two variants, the S1 and the S1 Pro. Each scooter variant is likely to have different features and battery packs. The idea is to offer 100,000 charging points across 400 cities over a period of time. Ola says it will set up 5,000 charging points across 100 cities in India in the first year itself, which is more than double the existing charging infrastructure in the country.
The Ola future factory is being built with an investment of about ₹ 2,400 crore. The manufacturer had announced that it will be ready to begin the first phase of operations at the plant in the next few months. The facility will be able to generate employment for over 2,000 people initially, going up to 10,000 once fully operational. About 10 million man-hours have been planned to construct the facility.
