There is a piece of good news for people who were waiting to get their hands on the newly launched Ola electric scooter. Ola Electric has opened the purchase window for its scooter from today - Wednesday, September 8. Customers who have reserved a scooter can convert that to a purchase by paying the remaining amount and finalise vehicle variant and colour options.

The company, which had last month launched the Ola S1 electric scooter in two variants -- S1 and S1 Pro -- at prices 99,999 and 1,29,999, respectively (ex-showroom including FAME II subsidy and excluding state subsidies), has informed that it will start deliveries in October.

The entire process of buying an Ola scooter is online. Even if you want to finance a scooter, you can do so on the Ola Electric official website. 

Ola Electric scooter: 5-step guide to get it home delivered

1. If you have already paid the pre-booking price, you can log onto Ola Electric website using your phone number and choose the variant you want to purchase. If you are yet to register the scooter, you can pay a token amount of 499 to pre-book the scooter. 

2. After finalising the variant you want to purchase, next, choose from the 10 available colour options. Ola has made it possible to change choices from ones that may have been selected at the time of reservations.

3. Next is the payment tab. Depending on the variant you have selected, you will now have to pay your balance amount. For people who want to finance their scooters, the equated monthly installments (EMIs) for S1 scooters will start from 2,999 per month. For the Ola S1 Pro, which is the advanced version of the electric scooter, the EMIs will begin from 3,199. 

4. If you need financing, Ola Financial Services has tied up with leading banks including IDFC First Bank, HDFC, and TATA Capital to help finance your Ola S1. HDFC Bank will provide pre-approved loans to eligible customers in minutes on the Ola and Ola Electric apps, the company said, adding that TATA Capital and IDFC First Bank will process digital KYC and provide instant loans approvals to eligible customers. 

In case you don’t need financing you can simply pay an advance of 20,000 for Ola S1 or 25,000 for Ola S1 Pro, and the rest when the company invoices your scooter to you. Down-payment and advance are entirely refundable but only till before the unit is from the company's factory. 

5. A delivery date will be provided once the purchasing formalities are complete. Deliveries of Ola Electric scooters will start in October. 

Ola Electric will update its customers about the waiting period on the basis of "where they are in the queue or when they have exactly purchased how many people purchased before them".

It is important to note that you can even opt to insure the Ola Electric scooters using the Ola and Ola Electric apps. “A base policy of ‘1-year Own Damage and 5 years Third Party’ is mandatory for registration," the company notes.

Ola Electric has informed that test rides for the Ola Electric scooters will start next month.
