In a recent tweet, Ola CEO Bhavish Aggarwal shared an image where he claimed to be in a discussion on the launch date of the new scooter. So far, the company has been tight-lipped about the launch date. The bookings for the scooter began in mid-July.

Apart from the launch date, the CEO also dropped hints about the delivery system for the new Ola Scooter. Aggarwal conducted a poll asking for his followers' take on how to deliver the vehicle. The poll had two options, 'Physical dealership/store' and 'Online and home delivered'. The poll had a clear winner for the 'Home Delivered' option.

The company has revealed a lot of information about the scooter barring the price and exact range of the electric vehicle. In terms of pricing, the scooter is expected to take competition head-on with an aggressive price tag.

In terms of range, the company has dropped a substantial hint. Ola Scooter can be charged up to 50% in 18 minutes, according to the official website of the company. This 50% charge can provide up to 75 km range. This hints that Ola Scooter may come with a maximum range of 150 km. However, the official figures may vary.

The Ola Scooter colour range has also been revealed. The scooter will come in a total of 10 shades which includes three different finishes: Matte, Metalic and Pastel.

The scooter will launch with some segment-first features such as keyless access which is an app-based feature. Additionaly, Ola has promised that the scooter will get the largest boot in its segment.

The bookings for Ola Scooter are still open for interested buyers at 499. Despite the huge interest in the scooter, the company has continued accepting bookings, indicating that they are ready with the required stock.
