The Ola Electric S1 and S1 Pro scooters are now available for purchase entirely online. Here’s a step-by-step guide to getting one delivered to your house.
You would be disappointed if you went around the market looking for a showroom to buy an Ola Electric scooter. This is due to the fact that the Ola Electric S1 and S1 Pro purchase process is entirely online, and the purchase window opened today, Wednesday, September 8.
Ola Electric scooters, which were launched on August 15 at a starting price of 1 lakh, are making big promises and have received a strong initial response.
While Ola Electric opened pre-launch bookings in July and received over 1 lakh reservations in less than 24 hours, the company has now opened the door for anyone looking to complete the entire payment process. The company also uses a direct-to-home sales model, which means that once a prospective buyer completes the formalities, the electric scooter will be delivered directly to a preferred or specified location.
But how does one go about completing the payment processes or even taking advantage of the numerous financial and EMI-related schemes available?
Here’s how to buy an Ola Electric scooter:
Step 1 – Anyone who has reserved one of the two variants can return to the Ola Electric website to complete the payment process. Purchasing a unit early may also help with priority delivery, but the company emphasises that the purchase process will be open only until stocks last.
Step 2: Choose between the Ola Electric S1 and the Ola Electric S1 Pro. Then, select one of the ten available colors and one of two finishes: matte or gloss. It is possible to change choices from those made during the reservation process.
Step 3 – Ola guarantees completely secure online payment channels. In addition, the company has partnered with a number of financial institutions to provide loans and EMI options. Financing is also available, with EMIs beginning at Rs. 2,999 for the Ola S1 and Rs. 3,199 for the Ola S1 Pro, courtesy of Ola Financial Services.
If you do not require financing, an advance payment of 20,000 or 25,000 – depending on the variant chosen – can be made. Once the invoice is received, the remaining balance can be paid.
The down payment and advance are fully refundable, but only until the unit leaves the company’s factory. Once the purchasing formalities are completed, a delivery date will be provided.
It is also worth noting that you can insure the Ola Electric scooters using the Ola and Ola Electric apps. “A basic policy of ‘1-year Own Damage and 5 years Third Party’ is required for registration,” the company says.
Ola Electric scooter deliveries will begin in October. Test rides are also set to begin next month for those who want to get a firsthand look at the products.
