Ola’s S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters appear to be a success for Indian customers as the EV maker’s CEO Bhavish Agarwal said that his company has sold electric scooters worth Rs 1,100 crore in the last two days.
After a technical issue delayed the process scheduled for the first week of September, Ola Electric had started bookings for its S1, S1 Pro electric scooter from September 15. The booking window closed early on Friday.
Ola Electric claimed to have sold electric scooters worth around 600 crores on the first day, with at least four units sold per second. On Friday, this amount increased by ₹ 500 crore.
Ola Electric CEO and co-founder Bhavish Agarwal took to social media platforms to make the announcement this morning. He wrote, “Day 2 of the EV era was even better than Day 1! Crossed ₹1100 cr mark in 2 days! The shopping window will reopen on 1st November, so reserve now if you haven’t already. ”

Ola Electric can now focus on the delivery of scooters that have already been ordered. The company’s manufacturing plant at Ola Futurefactory, Chennai, which is estimated to be the world’s largest for e-scooters, is almost ready to start mass production to meet the demand. Ola Futurefactory, which employs over 10,000 women, expects to produce two million units every year for the Indian and international markets.
The price of Ola S1 is Rs. 1 lakh, while the S1 Pro is priced at Rs. 1.30 lakhs. These costs are ex-showroom and will vary by state based on incentives available. The Ola S1 has a range of around 120 kms while the S1 Pro has a range of around 180 kms. There are also other differences between the two trims such as more color options available on the S1 Pro – 10, a higher top speed of 115 kmph and a bigger battery pack.
