Ola Electric scooter deliveries from November; full payment now only after test drives

Mini

The company said it will now ask the customers to make full payment only after taking a test drive

Ola Electric had committed to begin deliveries of its electric scooters from this month. That plan, however, has run into delays and is also likely to affect the company's next phase of sales.
Ever since the company showcased the product in August, there has been a lot of anticipation building around the product coming into the market.
It is now understood that Ola Electric’s plan to offer test drives has now been pushed to November.
It was supposed to start taking the final payment of S1 and S1 pro from October 18 and begin deliveries from October 25. However, the company has now decided to ask the customers to make full payment only after taking a test drive thereby raising questions about timely deliveries of the already booked units.
At this point, the company is looking to start these test drive camps only in select metros, to begin with. So the smaller towns and cities will have to wait for a little bit longer.
