Ola Electric scooter seems to have drummed up a lot of popularity for itself even before a formal launch as it’s been making headlines for what it’ll offer and the fact that it gathered one lakh bookings on the very first day of bookings being thrown open.

CEO Bhavish Aggarwal on Tuesday announced that the company is planning a launch event for the much-awaited Ola electric scooter on the eve of India's Independence Day- August 15.

"Will share full specs and details on product and availability dates. Looking forward to it! Thanks to all who have reserved our scooter!," he said in a tweet.

Pre-bookings of the Ola Scooter began on July 15 at Rs 499, with the company promoting this via the Ola ride booking app as well. The company revealed that it received over 1 lakh bookings in the first 24 hours, but an updated number is not available at the moment.

There have been speculations about the top speed of the scooter with a Twitter poll that the CEO held late last month in which he asked fans and prospective buyers to guess the top speed of the scooter.

A majority of the respondents voted for 100 kph+ which led to speculations about the actual top speed. It will, however, not likely be over 100 kph and a sensible 80 kph could be expected.

Ola also revealed that it’ll be available in 10 colours, including bright and dark shades. The aforementioned display will additionally feature bluetooth connectivity that will allow users to pair their smartphones with the scooter.

Not long ago, Ola Electric had registered model names in India and it appears that it’s set to be called the 'Series S'. The company has also registered ‘S1’ and ‘S1 Pro’, which will most likely be the names of the trim levels.
