Almost a month after the official launch, Ola Electric has now officially put its e-scooters, the S1 and S1 Pro on sale for anyone with a reservation. The entire process is completely digital, though the purchase window is open till stocks last. Moreover, to promote purchasing, Ola will prioritise delivery for people who purchase early. 

So, how do you purchase the Ola S1 or S1 Pro? Here’s a quick explanation:

Step 1: Choose the variant

Yes, even though you did choose the variant while booking, Ola lets you change the colour and even the variant, in case someone has second thoughts about their choice. You can choose from 10 colour options, two finishes, and most importantly, the standard and Pro variant.

Step 2: Payment mode

To iron out the payment plan, Ola’s financial branch, Ola Financial Services (OFS) has tied up with IDFC First Bank, HDFC, and TATA Capital for easy financing options, with EMIs starting from as low as Rs 2,999 for the S1 and Rs 3,199 for the S1 Pro. All you need are your government documents and you’ll be good to go in minutes.

And in case you’re not interested in a loan, you can pay an advance of Rs 20,000 for the S1 and Rs 25,000 for the S1 Pro and move on to the next step. Surprisingly, the amount is completely refundable if there’s a cancellation, but only till the scooter is shipped from Ola’s factory. Test rides of the scooters will commence next month onwards.

Step 3: Insurance

Offering hassle-free insurance for your Ola S1 or S1 Pro (which we completely recommend), the company has tied up with ICICI Lombard. While the standard mandatory policy includes 1 year own damage and 5 years third party coverage, customers can also add bits like personal accident cover, zero depreciation, and roadside assistance right from the Ola and Ola Electric apps.

Step 4: Home delivery

Just like Flipkart and Amazon, Ola Electric will deliver your scooter right to your doorstep. However, unlike the e-commerce giants, cash-on-delivery isn’t an option and you will have to pay the remaining amount (retail price minus your down payment) or get the loan approved, a few days before the scooter is shipped. And if you miss this window, the scooter allocated to you will go to another customer. Luckily, Ola allows you to come back later, pay the amount, and get a new delivery date.


Ola has also revealed the S1 and S1 Pro will come with a 3-years/ unlimited kilometre warranty for the battery, while the scooter itself gets a 3-year/ 40,000km warranty, whichever comes first.

Lastly, the Ola S1 and the S1 Pro are priced at Rs 99,999 and Rs 1,29,999. However, both scooters are applicable for various state subsidies, which makes them around Rs 20,000 more affordable in some states. For state-wise prices of the Ola Electric scooters, check out our story.
