Ola recently launched its first electric scooter in the domestic market. The booking of this scooter was started from just Rs 499, after which people showed great interest in this scooter. Yesterday, the company started the official sale of this scooter on the online platform. Now the company claims that it has sold electric scooters worth Rs 600 crore on Wednesday in just 1 day.
The company’s CEO Bhavish Aggarwal has announced this on the social networking site Twitter. Not only this, late last night, Bhavish Aggarwal also announced on twitter that the company is selling 4 scooters every second. Earlier, in one of his posts, he had talked about selling 2 scooters per second.
The sales figures that Ola has presented in just one day are quite surprising. The CEO of the company claims that the number of scooters that Ola has sold in just 1 day, the entire industry is not able to sell as many scooters in a day. However, Ola’s founder Bhavish Aggarwal is excited about the sales of his scooters and the craze is being seen among the customers as well.
