Ola S1 and Ola S1 Pro are coming soon to Nepal.
CG Motors, the authorized distributor of Ola scooters in Nepal, is planning to introduce its first electric scooter in Nepal.
Ola is a global brand that began as a startup in Bangalore, India.
It is India’s largest mobility platform and one of the largest ride-hailing companies. Interestingly enough, the company is building India’s sportiest electric car and 1GW battery power delivering grid services.
The arrival of Ola scooters in Nepal was a matter of “when” rather than “if”. Despite the many uncertainties, CG Motors is leading the charge for its introduction.
While the details are still scarce at the moment, the arrival is more or less confirmed.
Ola S1 and Ola S1 Pro will debut alongside one another at the NADA EV Show 2022. However, we will likely know more about its pricing, launch date, and more at the NADA event.
Ola S1 price in Nepal will likely be above Rs. 3 Lakhs to Rs. 3.50 Lakhs.
