Ola scooters could soon run in the US


The Indian ride-hailing startup Ola’s entry into the electric two-wheeler segment has been receiving a great reception and the hype of its release has kept the whole country on the edge.

Ola Electric, has entered the electric scooter market with a bang by launching the new S1 and S1 Pro scooters last month.

The company is not only receiving praises in India but overseas as well for its ‘distinctive’ and ‘advanced’ features.

The company claimed that bookings have poured in from over 1,000 cities and the company plans to start delivering to all locations simultaneously.

Now the talk of Ola Scooters launching in the US has begun, with an American entrepreneur Vivek Wadhwa has expressed interest in buying one.

US-based entrepreneur Vivek Wadhwa called the S1 and S1 Pro scooters–‘The Tesla of Scooters’.

He said that the Ola S1 is a 70-plus mph electric scooter id equivalent to the price of a bicycle (as per the US market).

In a tweet, Wadhwa told Ola Cabs founder Bhavish Aggarwal, “I would love to get one here in Silicon Valley”.

To which Aggarwal replied, “Yes soon! We will be shipping to the US by early next year”.

It looks as if the Indian scooter may hit the US roads faster than it is taking the American electric car company Tesla to run in India.
