Bhavish Aggarwal, Ola’s chief executive officer (CEO), in a reply to a Twitter user, confirmed that the company will be exporting its electric scooters to US by early 2022.

“Yes soon! We will be shipping to US by early next year,” Aggarwal wrote in response to a query about when the Ola electric scooters will be available in California’s Silicon Valley, reports Hindustan Times.

On 15 August, Ola electric had unveiled two variants of its e-scooter – S1 and S1 Pro. The delivery of the Ola electric scooters in India is expected to start from October onwards.

The electric scooters will be manufactured in at Ola’s state-of-the-art Futurefactory, the world’s largest electric two-wheeler factory, being built in Tamil Nadu. The phase one of the factory is nearly completed and production from it would cater to local demand.
