It seems that Ola Electric’s nightmare will not stop soon. Just a few days after the news of the capture of an S1 Pro in Pune, here is another recent event that could be a huge closure for potential buyers of electric scooters. In the recent twists and turns of the event, a picture of an Ola S1 Pro’s front suspension and a wheelbarrow parked on the side of the road is circulating on the Internet.
Although many details of the exact location and cause of this unfortunate incident are unclear, the image reveals a blue Ola S1 Pro with front suspension and wheels detached from the scooter. This damaged S1 Pro is parked on the side of the road.
The exact reason behind this error has not yet been revealed. However, there are two possibilities surrounding this incident. Although some say the scooter collided head-on with a rock, causing the front to be completely damaged, another reason is that the front of the scooter itself broke when the owner of the scooter was driving it. On a busy street. Both Ola Electric and the scooter owner did not make an official statement about the incident.
Although the front of the scooter looks badly damaged, it is nothing more than a repair and only requires a major overhaul. However, if the scooter is the real reason for the breakdown on its own, it will raise many questions about the S1 Pro, which is already plagued by several build quality and technical issues.
Under the Ola S1 Pro scanner
The Ola S1 Pro has already received a lot of criticism in recent times for its average build quality. Several owners of the scooter, who bought it, complained of poor body panels, inconsistent fit and finish level, and software defects. Some owners even got their scooters with broken body panels, which is one of the worst delivery experiences customers have when buying a new car.
This is not an inconsistent build quality issue that has raised eyebrows with the Ola S1 Pro. The electric scooter has also been in the news recently for technical faults. An Ola S1 Pro automatically catches fire when parked on the side of the road in Pune, causing the scooter to turn to ashes in no time. In another incident, an S1 Pro owner recorded and posted a video of his scooter exiting automatically in reverse mode at a dangerously high speed.
Providing his explanation for the reported technical flaws around the Ola S1 Pro, Ola Electric CEO Bhavish Agarwal said that vehicle safety is of paramount importance to Ola and the company is committed to delivering high quality products on its products. He further assured that the company was taking such incidents seriously, which was also confirmed by the official Twitter handle of Ola Electric in case of fire in Pune. However, no progress has been made since then.
