The booking for the soon-to-be-launched Ola Electric scooter in the Indian market has started. The company has kept the booking amount at Rs 499, which is also refundable. You can guess the popularity of the scooter from the fact that due to the huge demand on the very first day, the company’s website itself got a problem. Many customers looking to book the scooter saw an error message. On Thursday evening, Ola Electric CEO Bhavish Aggarwal apologized to the customers and said that this problem has come due to heavy demand in the website, which has now been fixed.
May be launching this month
Bhavish Aggarwal wrote in his Twitter post, ‘We apologize to those who faced problems in the beginning. We had not anticipated such a huge demand nor had we prepared the website for it. Now it has been fixed. Let us know that the company can launch its electric scooter this month. Its direct competition will be with electric two-wheelers from companies like Hero, Okinawa, Ampere, Ather, Revolt.
For those who faced issues in the beginning, apologies! We didn’t anticipate the crazy demand and didn’t plan enough scalability of the website😮 All fixed now
