Ola Electric has recently planned that they will offer home deliveries for its upcoming scooter in India, thus eliminating the requirement of setting up a dealership network. The brand has created a dedicated logistics department so that loan applications and other documentation can be completed online.
Ola’s Direct Delivery Plan
Ola may also open a centre known as “experience centre” for interested customers to explore the e-scooter in person. Ola Electric is planning to employ direct-to-consumer sales model.
Ola Electric, which views itself as a tech mobility start-up and not a vehicle manufacturer, has actively agreed to adopt a different approach compared to established two-wheeler brands.
Ola will employ a direct-to-consumer sales model, so the entire purchase process will be between the manufacturer and the buyer, eliminating the need for Ola to set up a conventional dealership network, which would be a resource-intensive exercise.
Some Extravagant Features of the E-Scooter
1. The Ola Scooter will sport a twin-pod headlamp with an LED strip, an indicator-mounted front apron, and a single-piece seat with a pillion grab rail.
2. It will pack an all-LED lighting setup, a 7.0-inch touchscreen instrument console with Bluetooth support.
3. The vehicle will tip the scales at around 74kg and offer spacious under-seat storage capacity.
Charging And Battery Usage of the Scooter
The Ola Scooter is expected to house a non-removable Lithium-ion battery pack which can be charged from 0-50% in just 18 minutes. It will probably have a top-speed of around 100km/h and a total range of 150km on a single charge.
