Ola Electric has started to roll out its charging network, known as Hypercharger, across the country, only days after launching its electric scooters, the S1 and S1 Pro. Ola Electric's CEO and co-founder, Bhavish Aggarwal, broke the news while announcing the company's ambitions to expand its charging infrastructure in the following days.
Ola Electric CEO Amit Aggarwal said on Twitter that by the end of the year, the company plans to have more than 4,000 charging stations for its electric scooters across India. To serve its S1 and S1 Pro customers, Hyperchargers are now being deployed in public places such as BPCL petrol outlets and residential complexes.
"The rollout of the Hypercharger has begun in several cities. At BPCL pumps and residential complexes, to name a few. During 4000 points will be gained over the following year. We're putting these up all throughout India, and they'll be up and running in 6-8 weeks. "Will be free to use for all customers until the end of June 22," Aggarwal posted on Twitter.
Ola Electric announced the introduction of their first Hypercharger in October. The business had previously claimed that its 'Hypercharger' system, which would be put in over 100,000 locations/touchpoints throughout 400 Indian cities, will provide charging support for its clients.
The Hyperchargers from Ola Electric will be able to charge e-scooter batteries from 0 to 50% in just 18 minutes, giving them a half-cycle range of 75 kilometres. A home-charging unit, on the other hand, will be included with every unit ordered.
Users may expect a flawless charging experience with the Ola Hypercharger. All that is required is to travel to a Hypercharger Network location and connect the electric scooter into a charging station. An Ola Electric app will allow users to keep track of the status in real-time, as well as pay for the service.
