Ola electric scooter specifications

The company has not talked about the features such as riding range, charging speed of the Ola electric Scooter for now. However, reports are doing the rounds that the scooter’s range could be around 150 km, with a top speed of 100km/hr, on a single charge. Apart from this, the e-scooter is said to feature twin LED headlamps and a large under-seat boot space. Simultaneously, Ola claims that space on the scooter will be class-leading, along with a range and price that will appeal to buyers. It would be interesting to see if Ola can match those claims and give us quality, yet affordable electric two-wheeler.

Having said that, Ola has set up a dedicated charging network for Ola Scooter, which is likely to grow and become available in more parts of the country in the near future.
