The picture of him and the first-ever Ola S1X production model has been shared by Bhavish Aggarwal on his X (formerly Twitter) account. The Ola founder and CEO shared the two pictures with the caption, “The first S1X off the line!! I think I like this design the most amongst all our S1 products.” The first picture of the founder was with his team members and the new S1X, finished in white, standing in front. In the next picture, Bhavish was seen sitting on the S1X electric scooter.

Ola Electric has launched the all-new S1X model in three variants. The introductory price of the Ola Electric S1X was Rs 79,999, but now the model has been priced at Rs 89,999.
