New Delhi: Ola has significantly ramped up production of its high-speed smart electric scooters despite initial delays. Now the Indian multinational ride sharing company says it will be opening up a new payment window soon to execute more orders of its Ola S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters.

Those scooters have made waves in the industry because of their combination of high performance and low prices. The confirmation came from the CEO that the scooters would be heading towards the export market this year has stoked international anticipation as well.

Ola’s electric scooters offer a maximum speed of 115 km/h (71 mph). The price of the scooter starts at INR 99,999 (approximately US $1,350). The original intentions of the company was to deliver the first scooters several months ago, but due to the production delays the deliveries only began in December.

Production rates seem to have increased though, as the company boasted a daily rate of nearly 1,000 scooters at the start of the year.

The scooters are produced in a megafactory known as the Ola Future Factory. It has an intended designed capacity of 2 million electric scooters per year, around 5,500 per day.

The plans made by the company include expanding the production capacity of the entirely female-run factory to 10 million electric scooters per year.

Now that production appears to be ramping up, Ola has announced plans to open a new window for payments.

Reservation holders who have paid 20,000 INR (approximately US $270) will be able to make a final payment from Jan 21. CEO Bhavish Aggarwal confirmed that those deliveries would occur over January and February.

Ola in February, 2021 had said that it has selected ABB as one of its key partners for robotics and automation solutions for its mega-factory in India that will roll out the much-anticipated Ola electric scooter.

Ola’s scooter mega-factory is billed to be the world’s largest. The company uses ABB’s automation solutions in its factory’s key manufacturing process lines, including its painting and welding lines. Ola had informed last year that the robots will be deployed extensively for the battery and motor assembly lines.
