“We are excited to build these custom scooters for the embassy of the Netherlands and are proud that they have joined our Mission Electric, which is to ensure that no petrol two-wheelers are sold in India after 2025. These custom scooters are a testament to our advanced design and manufacturing process that enabled us to seamlessly develop, test, and build a custom-designed scooter within days,” said Bhavish Aggarwal, Founder and CEO, at Ola.
Ambassador Marten van den Berg from the Netherlands embassy added, “We chose the Ola S1 as an important part of our commitment towards reducing emissions, which is essential not only for the environment but also to achieve the SGDs. It is critically important to go electric to address climate change in an urban environment. I look forward to the delivery of the vehicles so that we can replace our existing scooters in our office with Ola S1 Pro electric scooters.”
The company had launched its two scooter models on August 15. While Ola S1 will cost Rs 99,999 (ex-showroom price), S1 Pro is priced at Rs 1,29,999 (ex-showroom price). Interested people can purchase the scooters from the Ola Electric website.
