100K+ Charging Points
75 KM Range in 18 Min
In April, Ola Electric announced its ambitious plans of setting up India’s largest and densest charging infrastructure, called the Ola Hypercharger Network. In the first year, the company plans to set up over 5,000 charging stations spread across 100 cities in India.
The Ola Electric Scooter is derived from Amsterdam-based startup Etergo and its AppScooter. It claims a rather lofty 240km range on a single charge, courtesy three swappable battery packs measuring 1.155kWh each. However, this range figure is measured at a constant speed of 20kmph, so real world range will be lower. That said, the India-spec Ola Electric Scooter is likely to feature a non-removable battery pack with a claimed range of around 150km. Using the Hypercharger network, the battery can be charged up to 50 percent in 18 minutes, offering a claimed range of 75km.
It is powered by a 50Nm motor with a peak output of 6kW and continuous output of 3kW, which allows it to theoretically accelerate to 45kmph in 3.9 seconds. But with a kerb weight of just 74kg and all 50Nm of torque available from 0kmph, the Ola Electric Scooter should be quite sprightly.
It gets disc brakes at both ends (200mm/180mm) and rolls on 12-inch alloy wheels. Single-sided suspension front and rear means both wheels are entirely visible from the right side. This is a smart scooter with Bluetooth connectivity that can pair up to your phone to offer features such as geo-fencing, remote locking/unlocking, on-screen navigation, and phone call and music playback management.
