It is highly likely to feature an app-based start-up system, a large TFT display showcasing information like calls and SMS alerts, navigation, ride statistics and others.
The Ola Electric scooter will likely be launched in July in India. It will rival the likes of the Bajaj Chetak, Ather 450X and TVS iQube Electric.
