In the most recent and final incident, the scooter, reportedly fully charged, ran out of range in just 44km. Angered at facing these issues with the scooter, the owner poured gasoline on the scooter and set it on fire.
This is the second incident this week of Ola scooter owners working hard to voice their frustration. Recently the owner in Maharashtra marching his scooter pulled by a donkey and shrouded in banners asking the public not to trust the company in the town of Parli. The owner was reportedly frustrated with the lack of feedback from the company following his scooter breaking down a few days after delivery.
While the company is pursuing its plans for developing new electric cars, it seems there are still some issues arising about his electric scooter. Complaints and incidents ranged from issues with the build quality to a scooter involved in an overturned ride in the middle without warning to one incident of the scooter burning on the roadside in Pune.
