The first batch of Ola electric scooter S1 and S1 Pro delivery was supposed to happen from November 15. But the delivery has been delayed, once again. The delivery of the electric vehicle has been pushed by one month to December 15, the company informed consumers via an official email.
The new delivery date of Ola scooter S1 and S1 Pro is scheduled between December 15 and the end of the month. The reason behind the delay in delivery is the global chip shortage, which has also impacted several industries including smartphones, laptops, among others.
Global chip shortage delays Ola scooter delivery
Experts believe that the chip shortage and supply chain constraints will go on until late 2022. Going forward, the global chip shortage will impact smartphone prices as well. Industry experts suggest due to chip shortage the prices of smartphones will increase, at least until the end of 2022. Phone makers also say that they are struggling to fulfill the demand amid chip shortages.
Ola informs customers of the delay in delivery via an official email. The company noted in an email, “Due to the ongoing global shortage of chipsets and electronic parts, there are some unavoidable delays to your Ola S1 delivery. Your revised delivery window is 15th – 31st December 2021. We apologies for this delay and assure you that we are ramping up production as fast as we can so you can get your Ola S1 at the earliest.”
Ola scooter test rides
The company further noted that the test ride is live in 9 cities. In the official statement, Ola said to provide test rides to customers across 1000 cities by 15th December 2021. It also revealed that test rides will be available to all “as soon as possible” and “prioritizing allocation of the scooters we produce over the next few weeks for enabling test rides in 1000+ cities across India”.
