Ola Electric achieved a big milestone, sold 12,689 units in April
As per the April 2022 data shared by FADA (Federation of Automobile Dealers Association), Ola Electric is now the leader in EV sales in India. Ola Electric has grabbed the top spot in the fast-growing electric vehicle (EV) market in India, just five months after launching its first e-scooter.
Ola claims it has a maximum riding range of 181 km (although they later clarified the actual range) and a charging time of six and a half hours using a 750W portable charger provided with the scooter.
Ola registered a 39 percent growth in April over the previous month. Ola is also gearing up to launch its e-scooters in global markets and has revealed plans to launch an electric car by 2024.
According to the government’s Vahan portal data, Ola registered 12,689 e-scooter units in April, higher than the previous segment leader, Hero Electric.
At the second spot, Okinawa Autotech registered about 10,000 e-scooters while Hero Electric registered 6,571 units to be placed third.
“Ola market share: No.1! We’re shaking up the incumbents and vested interests. They better focus on their products rather than fake narratives against us! Customers and markets have voted for facts and truth. We’re just getting started,” tweeted Ola Founder and CEO Bhavish Aggarwal.
The numbers are quite surprising considering the kind of flak Ola Electric is facing from both the customers and prospective buyers for a variety of reasons. While the recent spree of e-Scooter fire incidents is one reason, the quality is also in question.
