The centres aim to provide all services under one roof and allow people to experience Ola’s EV technology and gather all information regarding the vehicles. They also enable customers to avail test rides of the S1 and S1 Pro, seek assistance in purchasing, get details on financing options and culminate into their purchase journey on the Ola app. These centres also double up as destinations for all the post sales care and maintenance of Ola scooters.

‘Holistic experience’

To ensure that more and more people get to experience our products in the most immersive way possible, we are rapidly increasing our offline footprint across the country with an aim to open a total of 200 of these centres by the end of this year.”
