The PTI report says that Ola will launch its first electric scooter in July this year. However, the company has not made any announcement regarding the launch on its official channels. In May last year, Ola acquired Amsterdam-based electric scooter manufacturer Etergo BV. Since then, many reports have said that the company can use the technology of the popular scooter AppScooter of Etergo in its scooter. Ola has a In tweet It has also said that the company is making 1 electric scooter every 2 seconds.
The reason for the slow sales of electric vehicles in India is the lack of charging infrastructure somewhere. Although Ola is set to solve it. As we told the company to set up 1 lakh hypercharging stations in the country promised Out of which 5,000 stations will be set up in 100 cities this year. These high-tech charging stations will be installed at office complexes, IT parks, malls, cafes, etc. in the cities. To build this infrastructure, the company plans to invest $ 2 billion (about Rs 150 crore) in the next five years.
The company has not yet shared the details of the specifications of the upcoming scooter, but if this scooter is like the AppScooter of Etergo, then we can guess the Ola Electric Scooter to some extent. The Etergo AppScooter offers three battery modules of 3kWh to replace, each of which is capable of delivering a range of 80 kilometers. In this way the scooter can give a total range of 240 kilometers. This scooter gets a 6kW motor, which generates a peak torque of 50Nm. The top speed of the scooter in Europe is 40Kmph. However, let us say that the rules made for electric vehicles in Europe are quite different from India. In Europe, companies have to limit the top speed of their vehicles. This is not the case in India.
