- The Hypercharger network of Ola Electric is being installed in public places such as BPLC petrol pumps and residential complexes.
Ola Electric has begun to roll out its charging network, known as Hypercharger, across the country, just days after launching its electric scooters, the S1 and S1 Pro.
Ola Electric’s CEO and co-founder, Bhavish Aggarwal, shared the news while revealing its plans to expand its charging infrastructure in the coming days.
Ola Electric CEO Amit Aggarwal announced on Twitter that the company plans to have more than 4,000 charging stations for its electric scooters across India by the end of the year. To serve its S1 and S1 Pro customers, Hyperchargers are currently being installed in public places like BPCL petrol pumps and residential complexes.
“The rollout of the Hypercharger has begun in various cities. At BPCL pumps and residential complexes, to name a few. Over 4000 points will be gained over the next year.
We’re putting them up all over 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 wrote on Twitter.
Ola Electric announced the launch of its first Hypercharger in October. The company had previously announced that its ‘Hypercharger’ setup, installed in over 100,000 locations/touchpoints across 400 Indian cities, would provide charging support for its customers.
The Hyperchargers from Ola Electric will charge e-scooter batteries from 0 to 50% in just 18 minutes, giving them a half-cycle range of 75 kilometers. On the other hand, a home-charging unit will be included with every unit purchased.
Users can expect a seamless charging experience with the Ola Hypercharger. All that is required is to travel to a Hypercharger Network location and plug the electric scooter into a charging station. An Ola Electric app will allow users to keep track of the status in real-time and pay for the service.
The company’s website provides a city-by-city list of charging network locations, with most Tier I and Tier II cities covered by the charging network.
