What is the cost of the Ola scooter?

The company is yet to disclose the pricing and specifications of its e-scooter. But reports suggest that the aggressively priced product may range in the lower 80k-1 Lakh. Key features of the Ola Electric Scooter include world-class-leading speed, unprecedented range, the biggest boot space, and advanced technology that make it the best scooter customers can buy.

A leak report further suggested that the Ola Scooter will come in matte black (we know this from pictures), pink, and light blue shades. It will also have a large digital instrument console that will display vital information like battery charge, range, time, etc. The leak also suggests that the e-scooter will use a 6 kW electric motor and a swappable battery. It is expected to offer a maximum range of 240 km. The scooter will accelerate from 0-45 km/h in 3.9 seconds. For reference, your Activa 5G takes 5-6 seconds to accelerate from 0-45 km/h.
