Ola Electric has opened 20 experience centres across India. The start-up is planning to open 200 more such outlets by March 2023, tweeted Bhavish Aggarwal, CEO of Ola Electric.
Helping people experience Ola Electric Scooters S1 and S1 Pro is the focus of the OEM via these experience centres. These experience zones are being referred to as a one-stop destination for all things related to Ola Scooter, including options, delivery, and more.
The OEM will also use these experience zones to retail yet-to-be-launched accessories for its existing range of electric scooters. An email sent to consumers by Ola Electric noted that these showrooms will help the company address the safety concerns of people around electric scooters.
