How To Buy The Ola Electric Scooter?
Ola Electric does not have any showroom, and the purchase process is completely online. You can visit Ola Electric’s official website to book your electric scooter. The delivery is on a first-come-first-serve basis, and the purchase window will stay open until stocks last. Once you’ve chosen the variant and the colour scheme (both can be altered later should you change your mind), move to the payment window.
Speaking of payment, here’s everything you need to know, summarised in bullet points:
- Ola’s finance arm, Ola Financial Services, has teamed up with IDFC First Bank, HDFC, and TATA Capital.
- These finance companies can approve the verification online and provide loans to eligible customers promptly.
- The EMIs start from Rs 2,999 for the Ola S1 and Rs 3,199 for the Ola S1 Pro electric scooter.
- Those who wish to purchase the electric scooter without any financial assistance may do so by paying an advance of Rs 20,000 for the Ola S1 and Rs 25,000 for the S1 Pro.
- The rest will have to be paid a few days before the scooter is delivered once the company sends the final invoice.
- The tentative delivery timeline will be assigned to customers who have booked the electric scooter.
- And yes, the EVs will be home-delivered.
- The down payment and advance are refundable as long as you claim it before the electric scooter is shipped from the factory.
Test Rides And Delivery timelines:
Test rides and deliveries of the Ola S1 and the Ola S1 Pro commence from October. Suppose you booked the electric scooter and are not satisfied with it after taking the test ride. In that case, you can still get your money refunded as long as the e-scooter doesn’t get shipped from the factory.

Purchase will commence in batches and will be on priority for those who had pre-booked it the earliest. Ola will announce the payment date in advance, and if you miss the payment, the e-scooter allotted for you will go to someone else. You can then finish the purchase process later, and Ola Electric will provide you with a revised delivery timeline.
Insurance, Warranty, Service, and Subsidy Details:
Ola says the S1 and S1 Pro can be insured through both Ola and Ola Electric smartphone apps. The company offers a 1-year Own Damage and a 5-year Third Party insurance as standard. Add-ons like a Personal Accident Cover, Zero Depreciation, and Roadside Assistance come at an extra charge. Ola Electric’s insurance partner is ICICI Lombard, which offers comprehensive insurance schemes for the electric scooters.
The e-scooters come with a three-year or 40,000km warranty (whichever is earlier), whereas the battery packs get a three-year, unlimited kilometre warranty for complete peace of mind. Check this out if you’re curious about how other premium electric scooters fare in terms of warranty policies.
Since electric scooters inherently have less moving parts, there is no need for regular servicing, unlike petrol-powered scooters that require a trip to the service centre every three-six months. Both scooters get brake pad wear sensors, which will tell you in advance if the pads need replacement. You can book your appointment through the Ola Electric app for doorstep servicing.
You can claim the FAME II incentive once if you have a valid Aadhaar Card, PAN Card, passport, or a driver’s License. It will also be mentioned in the invoice. Certain states offer additional subsidies over and above the FAME II incentives, which will have to be claimed after the purchase. These states are Gujarat, Maharashtra, Delhi, Rajasthan, and Orissa (as of now). Head here to know the complete variant-wise and state-wise prices of the Ola electric scooters.
