Ola’s electric scooters made a splash last month when the company unveiled its high speed Ola S1 and S1 Pro electric scooters. Ola had indicated that international export plans were in the works, but now we are learning that the US will be receiving the electric scooters much sooner than we had anticipated. The news didn’t come in an official press release or organized announcement.
Instead, it came in an Elon-style Twitter blast that caught the industry offguard.
It began when US-based entrepreneur Vivek Wadhwa tweeted at Ola CEO Bhavish Aggarwal, congratulating him on the scooter launch last month and saying he’d love to get a scooter in Silicon Valley.
Aggarwal responded by saying, “Yes soon! We will be shipping to US by early next year.”
Thats far ahead of any schedule previously hinted at by the company.
