Ola Electric will be unable to meet its delivery timelines and its first batch of scooters will now reach customers in the second-half of December.
Ola says the delay is due to chip shortage
Deliveries were originally slated to begin in October-November
Second purchase window was also delayed to December 16
After a period of radio silence from Ola Electric regarding deliveries of its e-scooters, it has now emerged that Ola has sent emails to buyers of the first batch of S1 and S1 Pro scooters, explaining that deliveries have been delayed to the second-half of December.
The delay has been attributed to the global chip shortage, and the earliest delivery window for the scooters is now December 15-31. Deliveries were originally supposed to commence in the October-November period.
Meanwhile, the company continues to expand its test ride operations and is aiming for 1000 cities by December 15. We recently had a chance to ride Ola’s flagship product, the S1 Pro, and you can check out our review here.
