Ola electric is planning to ship its Made in India electric scooter to the United States by early next year.

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.

Starting at a price of Rs 99,999 for S1, which includes FAME II subsidies but omits state-level subsidies, and going up to Rs 1,29,999 for the Pro model, Ola had said that it will start allowing buyers to purchase its vehicles from September 8 with the first deliveries beginning sometime in October across 1,000 cities and towns in India.
