Ola Electric has decided to voluntarily recall 1,441 units of its electric scooter Ola S1 Pro. The move comes days after Union Minister Nitin Gadkari warned EV companies about the fire. On March 26, a fire broke out in the Ola electric scooter Ola S1 Pro in Pune. The recall will be of the same batch of scooters that were made with the scooter that caught fire.
The scooter was parked on the side of the road when it started smoking and then came under fire. The company claimed it was an isolated incident.
“As a pre-emptive measure, we will conduct detailed diagnostics and health check-ups of scooters in that specific batch and are therefore issuing voluntary return of 1,441 vehicles,” the company said.
Bhavish Aggarwal had recently reacted to the government’s dire warnings to EV companies. He said, “It is important that the standards are at a high level. Stranger things will happen to everyone. But we are following high standards, which is much more than what is mandated. I support punishment for those who are high.” Do not support the standards.”
Ola Electric has appeared on BGR India for the first time since the recall of over 1,400 Ola S1 Pro electric scooters.
