Ola Electric, a Dutch-based electric scooter manufacturer, acquired Etergo BV in 2020 for an undisclosed amount. It also announced its entry into the premium electric two-wheeler market globally and nationally.

Ola Electric claims that it is aiming to transform the over 100 million strong global two-wheeler markets, including India’s 20 million, with European design, strong engineering collaboration, and Indian manufacturing and supply chains, using European design and Indian supply chain.

Ola will begin the online sales process for the Ola S1 Pro and Ola S1 electric scooters in September.

In August, the company launched the Ola electric scooter in two versions — S1 and Pro — for Rs 99,999 (ex-showroom, FAME II subsidy excluded).

It had previously announced that the scooter would become available for purchase starting September 8, and delivery would begin in October.
