Ever since the delivery of the Ola S1 electric scooter started, there was a demand to make its accessories available. The company was officially talking about launching the accessories soon for the last 10 months but it did not happen, now finally the company’s CEO Bhavish has said for the first time that the accessories will be launched soon.
Bhavish Aggarwal has also written about launching ‘soon’ but has not given a timeline. Ola Electric started delivering fast now but it has slowed down due to problems in the supply chain. The company had initially started delivering only S1 Pro models and now it has started deliveries of S1 models only some time back.
