Ola CEO Bhavish Aggarwal on Saturday took to Twitter to showcase the company’s first hyper charger. Aggarwal, in his Twitter post, wrote, “The first @OlaElectric Hypercharger goes live… charging up my S1 after the morning trip.”
Ola claims the hypercharger network will be the widest and densest electric two-wheeler charging network in the world, with more than 100,000 charging points across 400 cities. In the first year alone, Ola will be setting up over 5,000 charging points across 100 cities in India.
Ola Electric’s Hyperchargers will be capable of charging e-scooter batteries from 0 – 50% in just 18 minutes, making it fit for a half cycle range of 75 km.
Ola Electric is planning to offer first test rides of its electric scooters, Ola S1 and Ola S1 Pro, from November 10. The company will also resume bookings for the Ola electric scooters from November 1.
The Ola S1 costs Rs 1 lakh (ex-showroom) and has a stated range of 120 kilometres on a single charge. It comes in ten different colours and is powered by an 8.5 kW electric motor and a 3.97 kWh battery pack.
Due to its bigger battery pack, the S1 Pro electric scooter has a longer range of 180 km on a single charge and is priced at Rs 1.30 lakh. It has a peak speed of 115 kilometres per hour.
